Abstract

Sister lov'd thy form caressing,
While I press thee to my heart,
Oft I think our Lot is happy,
Never once to part;
Still to hear thy voice enchanting,
Look into thy laughing eyes,
Who so cold as not to love thee,
Nor thy fondness prize?
Flow'rs of earth and oceans treasure,
Lovely tho' they be,
All, with thy dear self comparing,
Worhtless, seem to me...

Sister dearest: Years have bound us,
We thro' Storm and Shine have rov'd,
Shar'd each others Pain and Pleasure,
Time our hearts hath prov'd:
Still we climb Life's Hill, together,
Side by side, our wishes lie,
One fond feeling both uniting,
Love, that cannot die...
Flow'rs of earth and oceans treasure,
Lovely tho' they be,
All, with thy dear self comparing,
Worhtless, seem to me...
