THE LAST ROSE OF SUMMER.
Tis the last rose of Summer, Left blooming alone, All her lovely companions Are faded and gone; No flower of her kindred - No rose-bud is nigh, To reflect back her blushes, Or give sigh for sigh.
I'll not leave thee, thou lone one, To pine on the stem, Since the lovely are sleeping, Go sleep thou with them; Thus kindly I scatter Thy leaves o'er the bed, Where thy mates of the garden Lie scentless and dead.
So soon may I follow, When friendship decay, And from love's shining circle The gem's drop away; When true hearts lie wither'd And fond ones are flown, Oh, who could inhabit This bleak world alone.
Hanzsche & Co., Printers, 166 Baltimore St.; near Calvert, Balt.
