To ‘ Fairy-Fingers.

Lines Written in an Album.

Fairy-Fingers, made to bless,1
Made to smooth, with sweet caress,2
Scars of sorrow’s deep impress,3
Time’s sign-manual of distress,4
From some souls else comfortless ;5
Made that this world’s toil and stress6
May, with less of bitterness,7
On the hearts that love thee press :8
Fairy-fingers, made to bless.9
