Excerpt: ... THE INDIAN MAIDEN. The warm autumn sun in the west was declining, And deep in the shade lay the valleys below, But the tops of the mountains, the river's broad bosom, The clouds overhanging, were all in a glow; When I saw a dark maid of the forest before me, On a moss-cover'd mound kneeling sad and forlorn, And her wail, as I sat 'neath the oak's spreading branches, i To me on the wings of the zephyr was borne. i "I have come," she exclaim'd, "from the wide spreading prairie, Where linger our people, a heart-broken band; I have sever'd each tie, on thy green grave to lay me, i And join thee, my love, in the bright spirit-land. "They tell me the earth is as lovely as ever--The streams are as sparkling, the sky is as clear, That the flowers are as fragrant, the birds sing as sweetly; To me all is gloomy, for thou art not here!

"Methinks thou art chiding me now that I tarry--I 'm corning, I 'm coming, my loved one, to thee!"...
