LINES ON THE DEArH OF THE LATE MRS TV HITTINGTON, OF TONNA, NEAR NEATH. UPON the grave ten thousand memories beam, Like glories from the Past, and stream along The bright emblazonment of a virtuous life Into the far eternal, where thy sphere E'er narrows round the throne divine. And lo, The poor and needy gather round the grave, And bitterly they weep their fairest hope ;— A lowly crowd, yet high and irreversible Their testimony in the court of heaven. They weep, for there is set the light of years, That, mild and pensive as the orb of night, Shone "here the world w-ts darkest, sh,wering hopes Like stars into the nuht of tribulation. Oh! husband, children, friends, and kindred dear, Why do ye weep ? If that the fragrant breath Hath left its mortal tenement, say, could The heavenly calm now resting on the brow Be e'er surpassed by life. and all the train Of agonies that lie in li e's rough road, With dauntless heart and high endurance given From God to meet the ills ? Would ye she liv'd? Did ye not hear, ye sorrowing dear ones, The musical sweet murmur of white wings, That fann'll. the glorious hea1, and lappet it in Elysium? Hath not God the white-rob 'd soul Now resting in his bosom? And far past The sta.rry mere, there rise the graduations of The H st, for one mora added to the choir Of Heaven Yea, even her much-loved na e Suggests humility, as doth a star Of lofty sphere when lowering its light Before the widening splendours of the day. Sweet be her rest and balmy her repose! Till God shall call her from the clouds, and send His ang Is in a heaven of lory down To meet her on the threshold of the tomb! Neath, Dec. 18 h, 1855.
