MORNING GLORIES. 

BIRTHDAY. 

E. R. N. 

 
THESE tuneful bells, all trembling yet 
    With wealth of heaven's own dew, 
This birthday morn, my dear sweet friend, 
    Began their life for you. 
 
Kissed by Aurora's rosy lips, 
    They woke with songs of praise 
To Him who keeps and blesses you, 
    Through all earth's winding ways. 
 
As from the flower, down falls the seed 
    Upon the waiting earth, 
And lives again in fragrant bloom 
    Of beauty's priceless worth;__
 
So, in my heart, your own true love 
    Lives now in flowerful story, 
And With my own lies folded in 
    This tell-tale Morning Glory.
