Subject(s): Mothers

My golden harp has one lone string, --
A lock of baby hair,
And, when I play it wistfully,
It sings a love-born air.
As hope's enthralling violin,
Or lyre o' vireo,
Resounded strings I touched of yore,
Oh, dawn-bright long-ago!

I play my treasured harp of gold,
Though plaintively it sings,
For never can the music low
Awake the broken strings
To vibrate e'er again with life,
In harmony complete --
But, golden hair, thy melody,
Thy tender lilt is sweet!
