Lucretia Maria Davidson (Лукреция Мария Дэвидсон)


To a Departing Friend


Farewell, and may some angel guide,
Some viewless spirit hover o'er thee;
Who, let or weal or woe betide,
Will still unchanging move before thee.

A hallow'd light shall burn at night,
When sorrow's wave rolls drearily,
And o'er thy way a cloud by day
Shall east its shadow cheerily.

Thy bark of pleasure o'er life's smooth sea
Shall gallantly glide along;
Pray'rs and blessings thy breezes shall be,
And hope be thy parting song.

Go then; I have given the spirits charge
To watch o'er thee now and for ever;
To smooth life's waters, and guide thy barge
Where tempest shall toss it never.

  1. The Good Shepard
  2. Morning Melody
  3. On Reading a Fragment Called The Flower of the Forest
  4. To Mamma
  5. To a Star
