Hymn After The Emancipation Proclamation
GIVER of all that crowns our days,
With grateful hearts we sing thy praise;
Through deep and desert led by Thee,
Homesick In Heaven
Go seek thine earth-born sisters,--thus the Voice
That all obey,--the sad and silent three;

On Auburn's tangled bowers,
The golden light is waking

We track his footsteps, but we never find him
Spring Has Come

For dry northwesters cold and clear,
The Fountain Of Youth
THE fount the Spaniard sought in vain
Through all the land of flowers
A Song Of Other Days
As o'er the glacier's frozen sheet
Breathes soft the Alpine rose,
So through life's desert springing sweet
The flower of friendship grows;
Questions And Answers
WHERE, oh where are the visions of morning,
Fresh as the dews of our prime?
Gone, like tenants that quit without warning,
The Ballad Of The Oysterman
IT was a tall young oysterman lived by the river-side,
His shop was just upon the bank, his boat was on the tide;
My Aunt
My aunt! my dear unmarried aunt!
Long years have o’er her flown;
Yet still she strains the aching clasp
That binds her virgin zone;
