On Time'.-Jfast (lowing river,
Vc dropped a few more tears,
And May was lain with her beauties
In a casket sealed for years.
The grave was wreathed In flowers,
By the tender hands of June;
And a 'dirge was sung by the songsters
O'er her grave at the sunny noon.
And the echo lives forever;
It lends a solemn air
To the brighter hues of summer,
And keeps her image there.
I looked away in the di-tanee,
Through the avenues of pines,
To the trec-frinjred mountains, yonder,
Where the evening sun reclines';
And there, like a benediction,
1 could see In the glimmering sky,
The wavering streams of sunligh't,
Mount upwards, far and high.
And thev seemed like a billowy ocean.
With a lone.lv boat in the bay;
Like a a fleecy sail in the heavens,
They glided faraway.
Then like a silken curtain,
The shades began to fall;
The stars came out in volumes,
Night hovers over all.
And on, and on, and upwards,
Shall the burnished sunrays go,
And bear away on their liosoni
The gems from here below,
