Roasalie! The Prairie Flower

On the distant Prairie, where the heather wild
In its beauty lived and smiled,
Stands a little cottage, and the creeping vine
Loves around its porch to twine;
In that peaceful dwelling was a lovely child,
With her blue eyes beaming soft and mild,
And the wavy ringlets of her flaxen hair,
Floating in the summer air.

On that distant Prairie, when the days were long
Tripping like a fairy, sweet her song,
With her sunny blossoms, and the birds at play,
Beatiful and bright as they;
When the twlight shadows gathered in the west,
And the voice of nature sank to rest,
Like a cherub kneeling seemed the lovely child
With her gentle eyes so mild.
Fair as a lily, &c.

But the summer ended, and the chilly blast,
O’er that peaceful cottage swept at last?
When the autumn song birds woke the dewy morn,
Little Prairie flower was gone.
For the angels whispered softly in her ear,
Child, thy Father calls thee, stay not here;
And they gently bore her robed in spotless white,
To their peaceful home of light.
Fair as a lily, &c.
