MRS. C. H. W. ESLING. We parted in sadness, but spoke not of parting;
We talk'd not of hopes that we both must resign; I saw not her eyes, and but one tear-drop starting

Each felt that the future no hope could restore; She shudder'd at wringing the heart of her lover, I dared not to say I must meet her no more.

To wither up the springs of youth;
And in the first warm blush of youth
Whose tears are doom'd to be forgot ;
Forget me not-forget me not!
