__ 'T i BUT A LITTLE

FADt FLOWER.
London: W. r? FO'R'I'EY. G;.reral .[in Printer

'Tis but a little faded flower,
But oh, how fondly dear.
'Twill bring me back one golden hour,
Through many, through many a wear'
year
I would not to the world impart
The secret, the secret of its power,
But treasured in my utmost heart
I keep my faded flower,
I keep my faded flower.
'Tis but a little faded flower,
But oh, how fondly dear.
'Twill bring me back one golden hour
Through many through many a weary
year.
Where is the heart that does not keep
Within its inmost core,
Some fond remembrance hidden deep,
Of days, of days; that are no more;
Who hath net saved some trilling thing,
More prized, more prized than jewels rare
A faded flower, a broken ring,
A tress of golden hair,
A tress of golden hair
*Tis but a little faded flower,
Once the fairest in May,
It brings me back my childhood hours,
Through woods where oft I used to stray,
But years have passed, and I have known
Youth's day dreams, youth's day dreams
S fly away,
Just like this little faded flower,
They pine and pass away.
They pine and pass away.
