To My Dearly Beloved


500 Illustrated Ballacs lithographed and printed by CHARLES MAGNUS, No. 12 Frankfort Street, New York.

To My Dearly Beloved.

When war was heard. and Freedom’s call,
Arous’d me from thy side,
No danger could my heart appal,
For thee I would have died.

When gloomy care disturb’d thy rest,
Or sorrow dimm’d thine eye.
Oh, did not then this tender breast
Return thee sigh for sigh?

But did delight thy bosom know,
And love thine hours employ,
We shar’d the sympathetic glow,
And mingled tears of joy.
