Adelaide Anne Procter
Heaven unites again the links that Earth has broken!
For on Earth so much is needed, but in Heaven Love is all!
Procter quotes
A little longer yet a little longer,
Shall violets bloom for thee, and sweet birds sing;
And the lime branches where soft winds are blowing,
Shall murmur the sweet promise of the Spring!
Know, dear little one! our Father
Will no gentle deed disdain:
Love on the cold earth beginning
Lives divine in Heaven again,
While the angel hearts that beat there
Still all tender thoughts retain.
