Poem by Henry Livingston


To My Little Niece Anne Duyckinck


To his charming black-eyed niece
Uncle Harry wishest peace!
Wishes roses over strowd
Oer her sublunary road!

No rude winds around her howl,
Oer her head no tempests scowl;
No red lightnings flash around,
No loud thunders rock the ground!

Bright has been her morning sun,
Brighter still be that to come!
All a blue serene above,
Within, all innocence and love.
