Last Lines of James Nack
A chosen and a faithful friend!A poet's love, a poet's blessing.Affection may some little worth impart.And bless my Valentine!And dearest of the dear!And dedicate them to our GOD!And earth has nothing more to give.And leave me all alone!And love Him and worship Him more!And my love loves me!And seems to whisper,
Come!And thine would break my rest!And thou an humble maid!But woman falls, to rise no more.Forget me not, my blue-eyed maidGo -- forgotten -- not forgiven!God bless thee, WALTER SCOTT!Her darling little Mary!I feel so happy I could die.In Thy boundless mercy trust!Love will find out the way.May she salute a brighter morn!My boy! my only boy!My own, my chosen bride!My sweetest joy! -- my fondest pride!One little lock of hair!Return to my heart!Seems more than life could bearShall love thee everywhere.Sweet friend! -- forget me not!Swells with unutterable love!That almost makes a heaven of earth.That can be worthy of thy own!That hails our wedded love.That shineth unto perfect day!The flower of love is fairest!The perfect angel stands revealed!The seal of perfect love!To calm my wild anguish for Mary my love.Upon a Heavenly Father's breast!When first her lips began to frame
Where are such feelings now! oh, where?Who giveth us the victory!
