WISH

 
 
 
 
 

flowers, with words:
JOY ATTEND THEE

 
TO THEE I'D BREATHE
A WISH THAT THOU

MIGHT'ST SPEND THY
LIFE IN LOVE AND
PEACE:

MAY CARE'S CHILL
HAND NE'ER TOUCH
THY BROW,

BUT
AGE SHED JOYS AS
YEARS INCREASE!

AND I WOULD WISH
THAT VISIONS FAIR

MIGHT EVER GILD
THY THOUGHTS
OF ME,

THAT THOU MAY'ST
SOMETIMES
BREATHE A PRAYER

FOR ONE
WHO EVER THINKS
OF THEE.
