IMOGEN.

By Maj.-Gen. J. B. Magruder.

Wake! dearest, wake! ’tis thy lover who calls, Imogen;
List! dearest, list! the dew gently falls, Imogen;
Arise to thy lattice, the moon is asleep,
The bright stars above us their bright vigils keep.

 

Chorus.—Then fear not, my Imogen,
Thou’rt dearer than life!
The heart of the soldier is the home of the wife, Imogen,
The heart of the soldier is the home of the wife.

 

Thy steed is impatient his mistress to bear, Imogen,
Home to her lover, on the prairie afar, Imogen,
Belov’d as a maiden, adored as a wife,
Thou shalt be forever the star of my life.
