Title Page Quotation I. A spring flower in a glade of dew, In modest maidenhood she grew, The child, with those deep eyes of blue: I may not in my dreams forget Their yearning gaze, like opals set In some strange, hoarded amulet; Like stars that on lake Windermere Speed the late voyagers as they steer, In summer nights, when skies are clear. II. A rude wind marred the blossom's pride; It withered on its green hill-side; It bent its patient head, and died: The glad book carolled to the spring; The forest leaves waved murmuring; The birds sailed blithely on the wing; But far from the fair mountain-dell One guileless life had passed to dwell— The child, the young-eyed Isabel. III. NO vain repining tear we shed; Silently, as the psalm was said, We laid her with the Church's dead; The tall trees wave beside her tomb; And ever the first flowers that bloom Shed on its turf their sweet perfume; And ever the scarred cliffs on high Watch from their granite towers, and cry, "Night wanted, and life's dawn is night."
