Excerpt from Musings of a Recluse

One pretty prattler folds my arm, Another, climbs my trembling knee; And, gazing in their gentle eyes, I see the drops they weep for me!

I try to take them in my arms, (dear obj ects of parental love!) In vain! I cannot clasp their charms, My stubborn joints refuse to move.

I try to hug them to my heart, That each 'may be a nestler there But grief hath dried its fountains up, And, on the ruin, broods despair.
