PREFACE.

I HAVE been gleaning through the fields of poetry and sentiment. I have gathered golden ears from sheafs of thought and feeling, and caught the choicest notes of songster and philosopher and having twined them in a bright wreath, I send it forth upon its mission to charm the eye and heart of Beauty. Go forth, little book! Wherever young hearts are bounding, wherever Hope has reared a temple, be thou found.

Be thou the medium through which the lover woes his lady, a bright link in Friendship’s chain, a sweet remembrancer of other days, a cheering index to the Future. Go forth, my little book! and blessings attend thee !

WORCESTER, 1848.
