Here you will find the Poem Song.Oh, had I ne'er beheld thee of poet Louisa Stuart Costello
Oh! had I ne'er beheld thee How calm my life had flown! As cold, as pure and tranquil As some fair vale unknown; Where never yet the footsteps Of wand'ring man has stray'd; That smiles in lonely beauty Unheeded?unsurve'd. How cheerfully the moments In sweet content went by, When sorrow's cloud pass'd swiftly Across a placid sky: The charm of peace is broken? Can nought its dream restore? That sky, obscured by sadness, Shall ne'er be cloudless more.
