Sweet Blanche, !bo i art lovely child,
Aye I a huclv (lower ail thou;
The rose is budding on thy cheek,
And the lilly on thy brow.
Thine eyes are of slarry luster,
Llllle eyes of laughing blue,
And around Ihy head does clusler
Waving hair of golden hue.
There is music in thy whisper,
rvecter than tin- singing bird,
For thou ait a ceaseless lisper,
Fond of many a prct'y word.
Long may'st thou be a rhilj at heart,
As jdai ful and as Iree
As now thou art, my little niece,
In the days of Ihy childhood's glee.
