SIMPLE and sweet as a child
Was she of the clear, blue eyes,
Her spirit as sunny and mild
As June with her mellowest skies;
Fragile and frail was her form,
Yet, oh, what a heart was hers!
Was ever affection so warm?
The thought of it — how it stirs!

The angels are not more fair
In Heaven than she had been
Here in the haven of care,
Unstained by the soil of sin;
And, oh, what a love she knew!
Whose spirit had been so mild,
She with eyes of blue,
Simple and sweet as a child.
