The Lost Sapphire
George Thomas Coster (1835–1912)
 
HER name? Look at her heavenly eyes!
  Her name shall ‘Sapphire’ be!
He held his babe on happy arm,
  And crooned in peaceful glee
The name of Sapphire, o’er and o’er,        5
  Like haunting melody.
 
He lived to mourn his Sapphire lost:
  Oh, the tempestuous day,
When swift from holy Peter’s feet
  They bore the dead away!        10
Sapphira! And in many hearts
  Were thoughts no words could say!
