|I love it, I love it, and who shall dare|
To chide one for loving that old arm-chair?
Eliza Cook.The old arm-chair.
|There is no flock, however watchd and tended,|
But one dead lamb is there;
There is no fireside howsoeer defended,
But has one vacant chair.
|So much the vital spirits sink|
To see the vacant chair and think,
How good! how kind! and he is gone!
