[from the Southern field and Fireside.]
by the River.

By L' Inconnum.

Down by the musical river,
Where the sweet stars goldenly shine,
Fond beam from her dark eyes quiver
Far into the depths of mine;
She pledged me her heart forever--
Forever I pledged her mine.

Down by the musical river,
I let to the pursing wave,
Calling her back, who forever
Will sleep in the quiet grave,
I know her dark eyes will never
Beam on me out of the grave.
