Verses To A Child Analysis

O raise those eyes to me again

And smile again so joyously,

And fear not, love; it was not pain

Nor grief that drew these tears from me;

Beloved child, thou canst not tell

The thoughts that in my bosom dwell

Whene'er I look on thee!


Thou knowest not that a glance of thine

Can bring back long departed years

And that thy blue eyes' magic shine

Can overflow my own with tears,

And that each feature soft and fair

And every curl of golden hair,

Some sweet remembrance bears.


Just then thou didst recall to me

A distant long forgotten scene,

One smile, and one sweet word from thee

Dispelled the years that rolled between;

I was a little child again,

And every after joy and pain

Seemed never to have been.


Tall forest trees waved over me,

To hide me from the heat of day,

And by my side a child like thee

Among the summer flowerets lay.

He was thy sire, thou merry child.

Like thee he spoke, like thee he smiled,

Like thee he used to play.


O those were calm and happy days,

We loved each other fondly then;

But human love too soon decays,

And ours can never bloom again.

I never thought to see the day

When Florian's friendship would decay

Like those of colder men.


Now, Flora, thou hast but begun

To sail on life's deceitful sea,

O do not err as I have done,

For I have trusted foolishly;

The faith of every friend I loved

I never doubted till I proved

Their heart's inconstancy.


'Tis mournful to look back upon

Those long departed joys and cares,

But I will weep since thou alone

Art witness to my streaming tears.

This lingering love will not depart,

I cannot banish from my heart

The friend of childish years.


But though thy father loves me not,

Yet I shall still be loved by thee,

And though I am by him forgot,

Say wilt thou not remember me!

I will not cause thy heart to ache;

For thy regretted father's sake

I'll love and cherish thee.

Alexandrina Zenobia
