Old Postcard

The old mill-wheel, it turns, it turns,

As in my childhood's hour;--

As when I bathed beneath its rim,

In its refreshing shower:

But they who were my comrades then,

Are sleeping on the hill,

And now, to them, forever now,

The old Mill-wheel stands still.

- The Old Mill Wheel, James Arvis Bartley
