Subject(s): Mothers


Oh soul so sweet! around Thy tomb
Green grasses grow, red roses bloom.
And Thou did'st love all nature new:
The morning star -- the evening dew,
Majestic mountains, towering high,
The fleecy clouds across the sky;
With each coming season Thou wert in tune.
Each flower, each bird was to Thee a boon.

But Thou art gone! oh heart of gold,
Leaving us stricken, heartache untold.
Still I can hear, o'er that far, weary way,
Thy loving voice, as Thou would'st say,
"Be brave, have faith, and always be true;
Remember, my dear, I'm watching o'er you."
