That prayers nor tears can e'er restore 
The loved ones drifted to that shore 
      Beyond returning. 
 
We've learned farewell oft through these years; 
She__welcome__where there are no tears,
      But joys supernal. 
And closely fold earth's loos'ning bands 
Within the house not made with hands, 
      Secure eternal. 
 
O mother, with the soft brown eyes! 
In thy fair home beyond the skies, 
      Am I expected? 
Canst thou not tell me that at last, 
When 'cross that threshold all have passed, 
      I shall not be rejected ? 
 
AT THE RIVER. 

       (My peace I give unto you. John xiv: 27. )

       THE river's not wide, 
       And the other side 
Seems nearer than ever before; 
       The waves once so dark 
       Recede from the bark, 
As I list for the dip of the oar.
