MEETING OF MY DEPARTED MOTHER AND HUSBAND



       "Joy for thee, happy friend! thy bark is past
       The dangerous sea, and safely moored at last -
                          Beyond rough foam.
       Soft gales celestial, in sweet music bore -
       Spirit emancipate for this far shore -
                          Thee to thy home.

       "You've travelled long, and far from mortal joys,
       To Soul's diviner sense, that spurns such toys,
                          Brave wrestler, lone.
       Now see thy ever-self; Life never fled;
       Man is not mortal, never of the dead:
                          The dark unknown.

       Thy pinions drooped; the flesh was weak, and doomed
                          To pass away.
       But faith triumphant round thy death-couch shed
       Majestic forms; and radiant glory sped
                          The dawning day.

       And home and peace and hearts are found and filled,
                          Thine, ever thine.

       "Bearest thou no tidings from our loved on earth,
       The toiler tireless for Truth's new birth
                          All-unbeguiled?
       Our joy is gathered from her parting sigh:
       This hour looks on her heart with pitying eye, -
                          What of my child?"

       "When, severed by death's dream, I woke to Life,
       She deemed I died, and could not know the strife
                          At first to fill
       That waking with a love that steady turns
