                                       Close the eyelids, close them gently;

                                       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.
