  Minniebel  

 

Where the willow weepeth
    By a fountain lone,--
Where the ivy creepeth
    O'er a mossy stone,--
With pale flowers above her,
    In a quiet dell.
Far from those who love her,
    Slumbers Minniebel.

There thy bed I made thee,
    By that fountain side,
And in anguish laid thee
    Down to rest, my bride!
Tenderest and fairest,
    Who thy worth may tell!
Flower of beauty rarest,
    Saintly Minniebel!

Weary years have borrowed
    From my eye its light,
Time my cheek has furrowed,
    And these locks are white;
But my heart will ever
    Mid its memories dwell,
Fondly thine forever,
    Angel Minniebel!

       - Mrs. J. C. Yule
