| No man can feel himself alone|
The while he bravely stands
Between the best friends ever known
His two good, honest hands.
| Though life is made up of mere bubbles,|
T is better than many aver,
For while weve a whole lot of troubles,
The most of them never occur. 1
| Shreds and Patches.|
| A rose to the living is more|
Than sumptuous wreaths to the dead.
| A Rose to the Living.|
