Sometimes as 1 sit in the evening By the light of the glowing coals. And the smoke, from my pipe, that goes upward, A vision there unfolds. A face in the haze that is saintly. And the voice of (he dying fire. Speak like (he voice of a living soul, What comes from my old black briar. 'Tis then the Godly Spirit, To my chamber enters in And we talk of life as ii really is. And of life as it might have been. Then when the smoke has faded, And I’m filled With hope that she gave, I forget my grief and my sorrow, And the silent lonely grave. I know ihai ihe tlesh in the earth still dwells Bui her soul has pdssed in the night. And It conies (o my room at evening tide Vo guide and lo keep me right As ihe fragrance of flowers lingers Alter the plants have withered and dried. So is the soul of my Saint still here Though years have passed since she died. I see, as I sit in the hazy smoke, The face that is smiling, yet sad; The face ihai I luve and call my own. The only sweeiheari I’ve had. And though she is wrinkled and gray. On earth I would change for none other To she whom I see in the hazy smoke.
