THE BILLET-DOUX.



VI.


Tell him how each morning breathing
    Shall my constant prayer ascend;
How the earliest flowers enwreathing,
    I shall at our altar bend.
May St. Geneviève watch o'er him,
    Every night I'll seek her shrine;
May she to his home restore him,
    To a home that will be mine.
