I saw thee weep—the big bright tear
   Came o’er that eye of blue;
And then methought it did appear
   A violet dropping dew:
I saw thee smile—the sapphire’s blaze
   Beside thee ceased to shine;
It could not match the living rays
   That filled that glance of thine.
As clouds from yonder sun receive
   A deep and mellow dye,
Which scarce the shade of coming eve
   Can banish from the sky,
Those smiles unto the moodiest mind
   Their own pure joy impart;
Their sunshine leaves a glow behind
   That lightens o’er the heart.
