Nellie of the North

Nellie of the North.
The watch-fires are gleaming—the bright stars are beaming,
The Picket’s gaze is fixed upon the sky—
And as the clouds are driv’n across the plains of heaven,
The Star of the North meets his eye.
While my heart is true to duty—it beats for love and beauty,
As I watch through the long, dreary night,
When Peace brings its blessing—then fondly caressing
My Nellie—I’ll clasp fondly with delight.
