Annie

What though the cheek be beautiful,
It soon must lose its bloom.
The eyes' bright lustre soon must fade
In the dark, silent tomb.
But the glory of the mind will live
Though the joyous life depart
And the magic charm can never die
Of a true and noble heart.

The lips that utter gentle words
Have a beauty all their own,
And more I prize a kindly voice,
Than music's sweetest tone.
And though its sounds are harsh or shrill
If the heart within beats free
And echoes back each glad impulse
'Tis all the same to me.

Mt. Carroll Seminary
March 1, 1860
