The Rose Family - Song II

Written by: Louisa May Alcott | Biography
 | Quotes (26) |
 O lesson well and wisely taught 
Stay with me to the last, 
That all my life may better be 
For the trial that is past. 
O vanity, mislead no more! 
Sleep, like passions, long! 
Wake, happy heart, and dance again 
To the music of my song! 

O summer days, flit fast away, 
And bring the blithesome hour 
When we three wanderers shall meet 
Safe in our household flower! 
O dear mamma, lament no more! 
Smile on us as we come, 
Your grief has been our punishment, 
Your love has led us home.
