Little path with
crooked angles
Running like a
silver thread
Out beyond the
picket gateway
Out beyond the holly's red.

Friends and loved ones
wandered o'er thee
Weaving on the
loom of life
Memories golden -- dreams
so olden,
Reveries of pure delight.

One by one they
left the gateway
Down the angles'
rugged path,
One by one they left
me lonely
Lost in memory's sailing craft.

When I, too, go down
the pathway,
Fringed with joys and
sorrows too,
May sweet memories
sleep eternal
'Neath the shining, morning dew.

May the sunbeams
hover o'er thee,
Let the stars like
lanterns gleam
On an olden, -- golden
Reveries, redeemed.
