UNION, OREGON, FRIDAY, JUNE 2),
This space is jnven for the use and
benefit ot our local writers of verse,
and we hope to make it a pleasing feature
of the paper. To that end contributions are
elicited, but they mu.-t poM. undoubted
literary merit to' obtain place and recogni
tion here. En.
Written for the Srolir.l
As time goes calmly on, Delia,
And passions ebb and How,
I can see in Memory's drama,
Old scenes of long ago.
They are not changed greatly, Delia,
They seem as gay and fair
As they did wficn we were actors,
And our voices echoed there.
The stage is about the same, Delia,.
Those old, old curtains swing
And I hear in my (laming fancy
The songs you used to sing.
And it holds nie still in awe, Delia,
I hear it just as plain
As if 'twere here, instead of there
That swells the iilver strain.
Yes, the old. old face is there, Delia;
The stern old face of right,
1 can sci! him vainly watching now,
For a. shadow in the night.
lint alas! no more will come, Delia,
When tho long day's work is o'er
Young forms from lields of labor;
Their voices ring no more.
And down the shadowy halls, Delia,
Fond eyes are gazing yet
That gazed when we'were playing
Such times I'll ne'er forget!
But then how childish it is, Delia,
To think of those old hours;
To walk again those pathways
Through tho bonding grass and (lowers.
And still, to recall those scenes, Delia,
AVith the voice that lent a strain
To ours, in the silent moonlight,
Is youth itself again !
Ah! fairer are thoso old scenes, Delia,
Than the finest work of art,
When the manic wand of memory
Leaves the likeness in the heart!
And sweeter is that old song, Delia,
Than the lute's most tender strain;
It shifts through all my nature
Till my heart beats free again.
And I feel my pulses throb, Delia,
With a sense ot cold regret
Though years have passed, so swiftly,
1 can't, I can't forget!
And on, down the ages, Delia,
As we drift on the foaniinn tide,
Dear Fancy will ever picture
Those scuies'on every side.
She will paint them o'er and o'er, Delia,
Her tasto is ever tine:
I will, keep them fondly in my heart
For their likeness is divine.
