'The Old Bachelor's' C6mplaint.',..
Through all my life I've sought a wife,
And courted many maids.:-
For hearts ; l've sued and many wooed,
Of different types and grades;
And scores I've won,but now I'm done,
For all of youth has fled—
I'd not be bound to one I've fotid,
And so I've never wed.
If you'd , know why the reason I
Still walk Life's path, alone, '
Please lend an ear and you shall hear
How youth's wild oats were sown,
When very young. I heard it sung
That earth no greater prize
Contained for man—,by ffeaven plan'd--
Than woman's loving eyes:
Here I'll annex, that women's, sex,
I worship and adore ;
Awake, it seems, or in my dreams,
Her presence haunts me more.
Sweet solitude, and vernal wood,
Remind me of her still—
Fresh burns the flame, and. each sweet
Or face awakes a thrill.
When buts boy I loved to toy
With little maiden's curls :
Each learnod page I used to gage
By what it said of girls.
The Bible read with puzzled head,
How evil we should shun,
Yet how the good, for whom God stood;
Could act like Solomon.
And, little fool, while yet at school,
I'd many a dear sweetheart;
Seine little Miss would own the bliss
The Lizzie Rays and Annie Mays.
• Who then I thought .1.1. - wed,
Are women now-each van worn brow
Tells of the mlrried or tfie dead.
Though long since. grown, nokonu would
the flame of early`days,
And I at last haVe onward Famed
On fairer forms to gaze.
In youthhood warm I felt the charm
Of many a rosy maid,
But could not find one to my mind.
And did the, noose evade.
And I have spent, in discontent,
A joyless life unblest,
No woman true, as heaven's blue,
I've folded to my breast !,
bit now I'm old, and growing cold,
Earth binds me by no tie ;
No child I leave, nor wife to grieve,
And miss me when,l die.
But !ill thy 'rtice l facies frim the feee.
Of nll the,beanteous earth;
0 I - raise a titOne'when I am gone,
To bear my name and birth. /
Without a isrife,/ , a useless life,
No oue-,will care I'm dead ;
So go, ye youth, in love,' and truth,
And ivho, and win, and wed.
