    To Ellena Boutwell

    And is there another dear loved one for me?
    May a strong cord of union now bind me to thee?
    Would you call me your mother? Permit in return,
    That I call thee my child, and your history learn.
    PSAS 26.4

    Pleased with your demeanor, and turn of your mind,
    With attractions I seem to see in thee combined;
    But few would take interest in one of my age,
    Though he might be an artist, a bard or a sage.
    PSAS 26.5

    Though past man’s alloted threescore and ten years,
    Though I’ve passed through afflictions, in sorrow and tears,
    In feeling still young, and in sympathy true,
    I would have the world better for my passing through.
    PSAS 26.6

    I’m glad I have seen you; I’ve one more to love,
    On whom to ask blessings that come from above.
    This friendship new-formed - may it ever increase,
    And we find in Jesus true heavenly peace.
    PSAS 26.7
