A MOTHER'S LOVE.

A MOTHER'S LOVE. And can a mother's love grow cold 1 Can she forget her boy ? His pleading innocence behold, Nor weep for grief—for joy ? A mother may forget her child, While wolves devour it on the wild; Is this a mother's love ? Ten thousand voices answer No!" Ye clasp your babes, and kiss; Your bosoms yearn, your eyes o'erflow; Yet ah remember this— The infant reared alone for earth, May live, may die-to curse his birth? Is this a mother's love 1 A parent's heart may prove a snare; The child she loves so well, Her hand may lead, with gentlest care, Down the smooth road to hell; Nourish its frame-destroy its mind; Thus do the blind mislead the blind, E'en with a mother's love. THE WIFE AND CHILD. My wife and child, come close to me. The world to us is a stormy sea; With your hands in mine, if your eyes but shine, I care not how wild the storm may be. For the fiercest wind that ever blew Is nothing to me, so I shelter you; No warmth do I lack, for the howl at my back Sings down to my heart, Man, bold and true." A pleasant sail, my child! my wife! O'er a pleasant sea, to many is life; The wind blows warm, and they dread no storm, And wherever they go, kind friends are rife. But, wife and child! the love, the love, That lifteth us to the saints above, Could only have grown, where storms have blown, The truth and strength of the heart to prove.
