TO MY ABSENT BROTHER



Dwells there a shadow on thy
     brow - 
   A look that years impart?
Does there a thought of vanished
     hours
   Come ever o'er thy heart?

Or give those earnest eyes yet back
   An image of the soul,
Mirrored in truth, in light and joy,
   Above the world's control?

So may their gaze be ever fraught
   With utterance deep and strong,
Yielding a holy strength to right,
   A stern rebuke to wrong!

Thy soul, upborne on wisdom's wings,
   In brighter morn will find
Life hath a higher recompense
   Than just to please mankind.

Supreme and omnipresent God,
   Guide him in wisdom's way!
Give peaceful triumph to the truth,
   Bid error melt away!

Lynn, Mass., November 8, 1866.
