Life's Eden.


'Tis in sooth life's Eden,
We within it;
Love put all the seed in
To begin it,
Made the air to fan it,
Light illumine,
Then put on the planet
Man and woman —
Us with our twin-nature
Dreamy framéd,
One with every creature
Thought has naméd.
Though the fiend find Eden,
Shall he find us?
In the heart so hidden
Love has shrined us,
By no earthly portal
May they enter
Where the life immortal
Has its centre —
Paths that are forbidden
Sin and sorrow,
In the heart of Eden
Love's to-morrow
Walks with feet that trod in
God's endeavor,
With the life of God in
Ours for ever!

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
