Gone in tier opening bloom,
far from tier kindred, lov'd and tried,
To glad another home ;
Already are the gay brief days
Of girlish triumph done,
And tranquil happiness repays
The early woo'd and won.
Fear shall invade her peace no more,
Nor sorrow wound the breast;
Her passing rivalries are o'er.
Her passing doubts at rest ;
Tiie glittering haunts of worldly state,
Love whispers her to shun,
Since scenes of purer bliss await
The early woo'd and won.
Here is a young and guileless heart,
Confiding, fond, and warm ;
Unsullied by the world's vain mart,
Unscathed by passion's storm ;
in 1; hope deferred" she had not pined
Till hope's sweet course was run ;
No chains of sad remembrance bind
The early woo'J and won.
Her smiles and songs have ceas'd to grace
The hall of festive mirth,
But woman's safest dwelling place,
Is by a true one's hearth;
Her hours of duty, joy, and love,
