And when you find one good and true
Marry him if he will you.

For the learned to laugh at,

Dear Helen
May your life be like an Arithmetic:
Your joys added. Your cares subtracted.
Your blessings multiplied and your sorrows divided.

You ask for your Album a rhyme;
With pleasure I hear and obey;
Refusal were folly or crime
For who could to Helen say “nay?”

Forget me not is all I ask
This simple boom of thee
Oh! may it prove an easy task
To some times think of me.

Lives of great men all remind us
we can make our lives sublime
and departing leave behind us
Footprints on the sands of time.
