THE GOLDEN RINGLET.
Here is a little, golden tress,
Of soft, tuibraitleil hair ;
Tho all that - s left of loveliness,
'That once was thought so fair.
And )et, though time has dimmed its sheen,
Though all beside halt; fled,
I hold it here, a link between
My spirit and the dead.
Yet from this shining ringlet, Mill,
A mournful memory springs,
That melts my loam and sends o flail,
Through all its trembling strings.
I think of her, the loved. the wept,
Upon whose fcrehead fair,
For eighteen years, like sunshine slept,
This golden curl of huir !
Gh sunny tress! the, oyous brow,
When thou diirst lightly wove,
With all thy sister tresses now,
Lies cold, within the grave.
That check is of its bloom bereft,
That eye no mole is gay,
Of all her beauties, thou art left,
A solitary ray !
Four years have passed this very June,
Since last wo fondly met;
Four years! and yet it seems too soon,
To let the heart forget.
Poo soon to let that lovely face,
From ou • sad thoughts &put,
And to another give the place
She held within the heart.
Her memory still, within my mind.
Retains its sweetest power ;
it is the perfume left behind.
To tell us of the flower!
Each blossom that in moments gone,
Bound up thia sunny curl,
Recoils the form, the look, the tone.
Of that enchanting girl.
Her step was like an April rain,
O'er hods of violets dung,
Her noire. tho prelude to a strain,
?awe the song is sung.
Her life 't was as a half blown dotter.
Closed ere the shades of oven ;
Her death, the down, the blushing hour,
That ope's the gates of Heaven.
A single tress. how slight a thing,
To sway such magic. art,
And bid etch soft remembrance spring,
Like blossoms 1.1 the heart
It lends me back to days of old—
To her I loved so long,
Whose locks outshone pellucid gold
Whose lip, derflowed with song.
Since then I've heard a thousand Ism
From lips as oweet as hers,
Yet when I strove to give them pratse,
I only gave theta tears.
I could not ho .r, amid the throng,
Where jest sod laughter rung,
To hear another, sing the song,
That trembled on her tongue.
A single, shining, tress of hair,
To bid such memories lean,
But teals are on its lustre—there,
I lay it n my heart.
Oh ! when in death's cold arms I sink,
Who then with gentle care,
Wdl keep for me a dark brown link;
A ringlet of my hair!
