Song of the Indian Girl

My dream was bright, but it past away, 
   The thought so sweet is gone— 
And hope hath fled, like a rainbow's ray, 
   Or a beam of the setting sun! 
But I am left, like an autumn leaf, 
   To the pitiless world, and the blast of grief, 
Till my day of life is done !— 
   Spirit of Love! O bear my soul 
Farther than Gunga's waters roll, 
   For my spring of joy has been brief. 

January 1827.
