Obituary

At Baltimore, Dec., 5th, 1864, George Allen, Co. H, 11th Reg't Vermont Vol's, aged 24 years.

Yes, loved one, thou art dead and gone,
  'Tis vain for us thy loss to morn;
For though hast joined the Angel train,
  And learned to change their sweetest strain,
But yet for thee we'd shed a tear,
  That one whom we had held so dear
Should from our fond embrace be torn,
  And to the silent tomb be borne.

This spirit was for earth too pure,
  For this cold world too bright, too fair;
Thy Father called thee to the sky.
  'Twas his decree that thousl should'st die.
Oh that thy spirit might be sent,
  And as my guardian Angel lent;
That when I too am called to die,
  'Twill waft my soul to joy on high.
