COMPANIONS.

Smile farewell to Sorrow:
Give to Joy good-morrow:
And charge him to continue
A quiet reign within you.
Smile farewell to Gladness:
Take the hand of Sadness,
And wistfully beseech her
To be your tender teacher.
So shall both befriend you,
And to the grave attend you;
There Sorrow from you sever:
Joy go with you ever.
