"Lula's Welcome" (1882)

Lula's Welcome

        [Suggested by the death, at East Nassau, Rensselaer county, N.Y., on the 7th of May, 1882, of her beloved teacher on earth, Mrs. L. E. Palmer.]

        One sweet, glad voice will greet thee,

        Two feet will run to meet thee,

        Two arms around thy neck be thrown,

        Two lips will kiss thine own.

        Two little ears will listen,

        Two clear, soft eyes will glisten,

        To See thee, bear thee, make thee known,

        And show thee round the throne.

        And bells in heaven are ringing,

        While angels bands are singing:

        "What God has joined forever,

        "Nor death, nor time can sever;

        "No more to know life's anguish.

        "No more on earth to languish—

        "Live on, with life eternal;

        "Love on, with love supernal!"

RIDER'S MILLS, N.Y., May 17, 1882. T.B.R.

Troy Times. May 25, 1882: 3.
