WE MEET AGAIN.
"WE MEET AGAIN!"-delightful thought When Parting's hour is near, With sweetest consolation fraught,
To dry the starting tear.
When first to School the urchin goes,
And still that hope, in after life,
Youth's ardour, Manhood's sterner strife,
Nor love, nor fame, nor rank, nor power,
Its influence can disdain;
Vot'ries of each, in Parting's hour
Must wish to meet again.
For Nature has unnumber'd ties,
The World, tis true, has much to mar
Too much that feeling oft must jar,
To breathe the fond and fervent prayer ;
Oh! may we meet again!
