THE ALBUM OF LOVE.

INVITATION.

Come, thou lover, on whose eyes
Dreams of absent beauty rise,
In
my
little
page

thou 'lt find
Balmy medicine for the mind :
Love still living in its prime,
Tried by sorrow, tried by time,

, O'er the clouds of human ill Soaring angel-pinioned still.

Come, thou maiden, sweet and young,
Like a lyre with silver strung,
Like the breathing violet,
Still with morning's kisses wet;
Like a sweet bird in its nest,
Stranger to the world's unrest,
Ere upon the breeze it flings
The rich painting of its wings :
Thou shalt find a wondrous spell
my

little oracle.
