A boon, a talisman, O Memory! give,
To shrine my name in hearts where I would live

For evermore!
Bid the wind speak of me where I have dwelt,
- Bid the Stream's voice, of all my soul hath felt,

A thought restore!
Song, is the gift with thee?-I ask a lay
Soft, fervent, deep, that will not pass away

From the still breast;
Fill'd with a tone-oh! not for deathless Fame,
But a sweet haunting murmur of my name,
Where it would rest!

MRS. IEMANS.
