The Light of other days
PRICE ONE PENNY.
Copies of this highly popular song can only be had in the Poet's Box, 6 St Andrew's Lane, Glasgow
The light of other days is faded,
And their glories past;
For grief with heavy wing hath shaded,
The hopes too bright to last,
The world with morning's mantle, clouded,
Shines forth with purer rays;
But the heart ne'er feels, in sorrow shrouded,
The light of other days.
The leaf which autumn tempests wither,
The birds which then take wing,
When winter's winds are past, come hither
To welcome back the spring.
The very ivy on the ruin,
In gloom full life displays;
But the heart alone sees no renewing
The light of other-days.

Containing 32 pages of closely printed matter.
THE information conveyed to all Lovers of Song in this
elegant little production is almost incredible-in fact, all
who have perused it have been struck with wonder and
astonishment. The POET'S poetical ''ADDRESS TO THE
WORLD AT LARGE," is alone worth ten times the money, not
to mention the vast amount of important matter which its
pages contain. It will be sent free, per post, to any part of
the three kingdoms, on receipt of Two Postage Stamps.
