Some grave and some cheerful, some merry, some sad,
Though none may be good, there are none very bad.

A gloom would steal over my spirit sometimes,
If the friends I have loved, in these heavenly climes,

To feel that the few thou hast loved have deceived,
Have forsaken the heart that confided, believed,
And left it as leafless, as bloomless, and waste
