SONG OF FAIRLIGHT GLEN.

I loved the lone place
in my childish days,
For the primrose blossomed there,
And the violets grew
among the harebells blue,
And the spring birds warbled clear :
And the green boughs swung in the breeze,
and sung Like the music of a dream ;
But the charm of all
was the waterfall, And the dripping of the stream. ' •
Drip ! drip ! drip !

The water still falls on the mossy lip
Of the old grey stones in the stream.
I loved the lone place in my youthful days,
When I wandered there alone ;
When far from the strife
of the tide of life,
I mused on the silent stone ;
And the noontide ray
of the summer day
Through the trembling leaves would gleam ;
But the best of all
was the waterfall,
And the music of the stream !
Drip! drip! drip!
The water still falls
on the mossy lip
Of the old grey stones in the stream.
