A LEAF FROM THE OLD FOREST.

POEMS BY JOHN D. COSSAR.

LONDON: SMART & ALLEN, LONDON HOUSE YARD, PATERNOSTER ROW. 1870.

A LEAF FROM THE OLD FOREST.

O bring me a leaf from the Old Forest, The forest of beauty and song; Where the Ettrick, through woods and fair meadows, Doth lead its sweet waters along.

O bring me a leaf from the Old Forest, A tuft from the glossy black pine; A leaf from the oak and high chestnut tree And a branch of green holly combine.

O bring me a leaf from the Old Forest, A token so sacred, O bring; 'Twill recall those bright scenes to remembrance, Old friendships around it will cling.
