THl NEW YEAR'S DAY.
The New Year's day! in many a
Tis still kept sacred and apart;
And time can never quite estrange,
Its young emotions from the heart;
There'.-joy within its circle yet,
There's hope within its rising ray,
The heart can never quite forget
The ancient brightness of the day.
The voung behold the tide of time
In glorious fulness sweeping past,
And many a glance of joy sublime
Upon its bounding waves U cast;
1 Ley spread their canvass on the sea,
They care not how the gale may
Ad move in rapture, wild and free
As it there were no graves below.
Tlx man, with calm and quiet smile,
Regards his children at their play,
I'nbtuds his heart & leels the while.
The influence of the new year's day.
He counts the labors of his lift,
And says with sorrow, all is vain;
Yet, ere he rests him from the strife,
He hurries to the field again.
Hieaed, on whose snowy brow
The storms of many a year have
Sees waves of memory rolling now
In dying whispers to his feet;
ith heart sustained by thoughts of
With gentle firmness in his eye
He waits the coming of the hour.
That bears the last command to
For he whose thoughts have learned
On strong devotion's upward wing,
btes, far beyond these lower skies, ,
Another new year's day break
year, that hath no closing day,
A year, that knows no wintry
year, whose earliest morning ray
Bieaks from the midnight of the
"hen let the tide of time roli on:
for who would stay its downward j
Region's undescendini? sun
sheds its holy light below.
W vainly to tl,e hearts of men
" that inspiring promise given,
'neltet shall all be found again,
Anddeath conduct to life & heaven.
