"A - mound is in the graveyard, -
A short and narrow bed;
No grass is growing on it, • .
And no marble at his head! •
Ye may go aud weep beside it,
Ye may kneel and kiss the cod
Bat yell find no halm for sorrow
Yn the cold and silent clod! •
There is anguish in theiniusehold,
I; is -desolate and lone,
For a fondly cherished nursling •
From the parent nest has flown.
A little form ismissing,.
A heart haa•ceased to beat,
.And the chain of lore lice shattered
' At the desolator'a feet. -
Remove the•chair now empty,
His put away,
And all his little playthings
With your choicest treasures lay.
Strive not to cheek the tear-drops . •
That fall 'Me autpmer rain,
• _ .For the sun of hope sitinez through them—
; Te ahall see, his face again! •
.Oh, think rbe're rests your (Luling!
Not in his little bed, - -
Not in the distant ehurthvard,
With the still and mouldering dead,;'
But in a hearenly - Mansion,
Upon ids Saviour's breast ; •
With his loving arms about hint,
lle takes his sainted rest!'
He has put on robes of glory,
Foi the little ones ye itought,
And he Angers golden harp-strings
For the toys his.parents brought.
Oh, weep: but with rejoicing!
A:heart-gem have ye given,
And behold its glorious setting
In, thediadem of heaven !.
