Subject(s): Death - Children; Death - Babies

ONE little bud adorned my bower,
And shed sweet fragrance round;
It grew in beauty, hour by hour,
Till, ah! the Spoiler came in power,
And crushed it to the ground.

Yet not forever in the dust
That beauteous bud shall lie;
No! — in the garden of the just,
Beneath God's glorious eye, we trust,
'T will bloom again on high.
