Blighted hopes, and prospects drear, for me will lose their sting, Endless troubles shall harm not me, when fancy on the wing A lapse of years shall travel o’er, and again before me cast Dreams of happy fleeting moments then for ever past: Not any worldly pleasure has such magic charms for me E’en now, as those short moments spent in company with thee; Life has no charms, no happiness, no pleasures, now for me Like those I feel, when ’tis my lot Maria, to gaze on thee.https://dickenssearch.com/files/original/3/Acrostic/1830-31_Autograph_Album_of_Maria_Beadnell_Acrostic.pdf

From the autograph album of Maria Beadnell (1830-1831).</a>18311101While sitting one day in his well aired halls Of which we&#039;ve often heard tell, The Devil determined to make a few calls To see if his Friends were well: So he put on his best and himself he drest In his long tailed coat of green And he buttoned it tightly o&#039;er his chest Lest his own tail should be seen. To the House of Lords the Devil went straight To learn the state of Nations, And with mixed feelings of pleasure and hate He heard their deliberations; For he saw a few Nobles rich and proud War &#039;gainst the people and Prince, And he thought with pain tho&#039; he laughed aloud Of the Wars in Heav&#039;n long since. Then to Irving&#039;s Chapel he gaily hied To hear the new &quot;unknown tongue&quot; And he welcomed with great pleasure and pride The Maniacs he&#039;d got among: For it always fills the Devil with glee To hear Religion mocked, And it pleases him very much to see Sights at which others are shocked. Then away to Bristol he quickly walked T&#039;indulge in meditation, And he gaily laughed as he slowly stalked O&#039;er a scene of desolation. He honored the hand that had done the deed Vowed that an &quot;Anti&quot; he&#039;d be Then back to London he started with speed His old friend Sir Charles to see. The Devil was walking up Regent Street As some other great folks do When a very old friend he chanced to meet Whom it pleased him much to view. Let those describe his great pleasure who can On the Member for Preston spying He took off his hat for he envied the Man His pow&#039;r of deceit and lying. As the Devil was passing I won&#039;t say where But not far from Lombard Street, He saw at a window a face so fair That it made him start and weep For a passing thought rushed over his brain Of days no beyond recal, He thought of the bright angelic train And of his own wretched fall. A dim cold feeling of what he had been Wrung from him a bitter groan He gazed and thought of the Angels who sing Surrounding Heaven&#039;s High Throne. He thought of the time, – the happy time, – When among them he had been And he madly cursed the impious crime Which plunged him in pain and sin. This feeling vanished as soon as it came And he turned to walk away But sought for this Album to find the name Of her he&#039;d seen that day. He cast his eye swiftly o&#039;er these few lines To drive away thoughts so sad And he said with glee &quot;they&#039;re worthy of me For I&#039;m sure they&#039;re devilish bad.&quot;
