On a Sun-Dial
For Dr. Henry I. Bowditch

WITH warning hand I mark Time’s rapid flight
From life’s glad morning to its solemn night;
Yet, through the dear God’s love, I also show
There ’s Light above me by the Shade below.
*        *        *        *        *
On a Fountain
For Dorothea L. Dix

STRANGER and traveller,
        5
  Drink freely and bestow
A kindly thought on her
  Who bade this fountain flow,
Yet hath no other claim
  Than as the minister        10
Of blessing in God’s name.
  Drink, and in His peace go!

  1879.
