POEM OF THE DAY: Song—In Early Days

by Louisa Stuart Costello (1799 – 1870).


Song.—In Early Days


In early days thy fondness taught

  My soul its endless love to know;

Thy image waked in every thought,

  Nor fear’d my tongue to tell thee so.


In all the trusting faith of youth,                                5

  That knows no dread, that feels no care,

I deem’d thy heart was all of truth,

  And I the cherish’d object there.


Alas! the vision’d bliss is gone—

  Too soon those days were o’er!                             10

This heart still loves—but loves alone—

  Its joys are there no more
