Unto thy little Saviour; ...

This bud of love by summer's ripening breath
May prove a beauteous flower when next we meet.

And the pale Virgin shrouded in snow, ...

And list to the love of these, She a window flower, And he a winter breeze.

And thought of naught to say, And morning found the breeze A hundred miles away.
