Eleanor Oliver Album Poem 'untitled' - Poem by Darwin Henry Beuning

When will parting scenes be oe'r

Separation known no more

When will friendship bloom again

Love and bliss forever reign

When mortality is oe'r

Then will parting be no more

When misfortunes dreary blast

Blights the pleasures of the past

When no gleam of joy I see

Memory then returns to thee

Days departed I review

Scenes of pleasure spent with you

Elizabeth A. Lawrence
March 10th 1851

    Lovely poem. The meter and the rhyme are perfect. Every line contains exactly seven syllables.
    Outstanding. I said it before and I'll say it again: That poem book you came across is truly a treasure. Want to sell it?

    Kim, it was good talking with you yesterday. Yes, it is a wonderful album. I think it belongs in a Pennsylvania museum. I wonder if our country has a poetry museum where original writings of our poets are kept? ? Sounds like more research. I will have to move it along before my demise, or else it will be sold at an estate sale for fifty cents.
