Sacrifice

 I gave an eye to save from night
 A babe born blind;
And now with eager semi-sight
 Vast joy I find
To think a child can share with me
 Earth ecstasy!

Delight of dawn with dewy gleam
 On damask rose;
Crimson and gold as pennons stream
 Where sunset flows;
And sight most nigh to paradise,
 Star-studded skies.
Ah! How in old of age I feel, E'er end my days, Could I star-splendoured sky reveal To childish gaze, Not one eye would I give, but two,-- Well, wouldn't you?
