by James S. Wallace
Not think of thee! There is a spell
Which binds remembrance to the past,
'Round which fond Hope will raptured dwell,
And linger fondly to the last.
Not think of thee! Oh, Friendship's bloom
Is like a flower, than shuns the light,
And only sheds its rich perfume,
When veiled in absence and the night!
Not think of thee! Nay, when the bliss
Of every former joy has passed,
I'll think of all thy tenderness,
And love thee fondly, to the last.
Not think of thee! I could as soon
Forget the home my childhood nurs'd;
I breathe no prayerI seek no boon,
But thy dear happiness is first!
