Dedication For An Album

 Next Poem          

Flattery, fair but false, retire!
Off, incorrigible liar,
With thy tongue and pen of fire!


Here thy words are needed not:
Ever sacred be this spot
Unto Love, -- which changes not;


Unto Friendship, true and pure,
Which shall evermore endure,
As the earth's foundation sure!


Unto Truth, whose words, though few,
Gently falling as the dew,
Have a power forever new!
