Close the eyelids, close them gently;
Sever one dear golden tress;
Fold her icy hand, all meekly
Smooth the little snowy dress.
Farewell Abbie, now the tear drops
Falleth for alas! we know,
That our fireside will be lonely,
We shall miss our darling so.
When the evening shadows gather,
We shall wait in vain to feel,
Little arms all white and dimpled,
Round out neck so softly steal.
Our wet cheeks will miss the pressure
Of sweet lips so warm and red;
And our bosoms Oh' how sadly
Miss that darling little head.
We'll not murmur, this is only
The clay dress our darling wore,
God has robed her as an angel
She hath need of this no more.
Fold her hand; and o'er her pillow,
Scatter flowers all pure and white,
Kiss that marble brow and whisper
"Annie dear, good night, good night."
In Bridgeton, October 24th, Willie Warren, child of Albert B. and
Mary Frost Kilborn, aged 5 months, 26 days.
Go, lovely babe, go to thy rest,
They Savior bid thee come,
Go join the ransomed and the blest,
And leave this earthly home.
