          A Wish
O could I find a kindred heart
Whose feelings would respond to m
                            ine
Would bear in all its joys a part,
And in my griefs as freely join
That kindred heart how I would I love
And guard it with a Misers care
And that I ne'er its less might prove
Would be my first my fondest prayer
Ann Maria Loder
