The Last Adieu.
BY MRS. MAY MEAD—NEE KELLEY.
They parted by the garden gate
When the moon was in the sky,
The violet kissed the drooping rose,
The lilly breathed a sigh.
And when he kissed her blushing cheek
The dewdrop shed a tear.
The song of the whippoo rwill
Was all hhat they could hear.
All nature was hushed in silence,
For it seemed as if it knew
That it was their last sad parting;
It was their last adieu.
Wrapped in the stars and stiipea.
Under a foreign sky,
There lies the lonely grave
Of the lad who said, “Good bye.”

wishes which won the hearts of
all about her Her father, mother,

very lonely without their loved

earth, and after their first keen

love to think of Gracie safe—

Of innocent mirth, «
Emblems of purity
The purest on earth.
Wherever you dwell,
May content be your lot,
And friendship like ivey

Decked in mantles of peace,
Shed light o’er your dwelling,
Your blessings increase.
May you Minnehaha girls,
So happy and gay,
Long live to take part.
In this innocent way.
