"And though in distant climes to roam,

A wanderer from my native home,

I fain would soothe the sense of Care,

And lull to sleep the Joys that were,

Thy Image may not banished be--

Still, Mary! still I sigh for thee."

I fain would soothe the sense of Care,

And lull to sleep the Joys that were,

Thy Image may not banished be--

Still, Mary! still I sigh for thee."
