MY BOYHOOD'S HAPPY HOME. O.N'CE more I tread.the much-loved spot," Where I in youth have play'd And see the well-known fields again, O'er which so oft I stray'd. Glad welcomes sound on every hand, But yet I'm dull a id sad: Something, alas is wanting still, To make my heart feel glad. The quaint old church looks still the same, The parson's house is here; The mill is turning as of old, The stream still flows as clear. But where are they t!iat wateh'd o'er me, That soothed me into rest, And first instill'd the holy word Into my youthful breast 1 Yes-, where are they ? Can they be gone, While all the rest remain 'Tis true! upon a fresh tombstone I trace the hallow'd name. My bosom swells with grief, as o'er The sacred spot I roam— The tie is gone that binds me to My boy Hood's happy home!
