TO

GENERAL GEORGE P. MORRIS.

“Look into thy heart, and write,” has become the watchword of to-day. But you have searched, not your own heart alone, but the deep heart of our universal humanity; not with a harsh touch to bring its foibles to light, but with a generous hand, to aid every aspiration towards the beautiful and the true, and to raise the longing soul to those realms of light and song,

where your genial spirit finds its native home. So have you guided me towards that sunny land ; and though my weak hand may not reach the radiant blooms, meet for a poet's brow, let me lay at your feet this tribute flower, in grateful memory of enduring friendship.
