“The Sentimental Forget-Me-Not Songster”

We highlight a tiny treasure of poetry from the Delaware Historical Society’s literarities this week. Measuring just 4 1/2 inches long with 256 pages, The Sentimental Forget-Me-Not Songster is a charming representative of 19th century sensibilities and romanticism. Our selections from Songster are Life on An Ocean Wave; Gypsy King and Gypsy Bride; I Love The Stream; The Heart Bow’d Down with Weight of Woe; T’is All But a Dream, At Best; The Lone One; A Mother’s Love; Home of My Childhood; Hope Told A Flattering Tale; I Saw Thee But An Hour; Oh Rest Thee Babe; Bonny Bunch of Roses; Banks of the Blue Moselle and Am I Not Fondly Thine Own?
