Adda And Lottie.

"The Heavenly Twins."
WHO meet me oft with bounding glee,
And smiling face and heart as free
As any bird in forest tree___
          The heavenly twins.
Who turn my night to glorious day,
And chase my sadness all away,
While neath their laughter's charming sway___
          The heavenly twins.
Who startle me with wild alarms,
Then compass me with loving arms,
And win my heart with childhood's charms___
          The heavenly twins.
Rare blessings on each heart and head,
And in the ways that they are led
May sin and sorrow never tread___
          Sweet heavenly twins.
