ON A SUN-DIAL.Edit

FOR DR. HENRY I. BOWDITCH.Edit

With warning hand I mark Time's rapid flight
From life's glad morning to its solemn night;
Yet, through the dear God's love, I also show
There's Light above me by the Shade below.

ON A FOUNTAIN.Edit

FOR DOROTHEA L. DIX.Edit

Stranger and traveller,
Drink freely and bestow
A kindly thought on her
Who bade this fountain flow,
Yet hath no other claim
Than as the minister
Of blessing in God's name.
Drink, and in His peace go!
