  1. O Little Road

    by Annette Wynne

    O little road, where do you go?
    I saw you start a while below,
    And then you climbed the woody hill;
    It almost seemed you'd reach the sky, While down below so patient, I Am standing, waiting for you still.

    Will you sometime turn round and then
    Hurry back to home again?
    Or will you always want to stray
    To richer lands far, far away—
    And never once look back to see
    This little house and waiting me?

  2. Tear Stains

    by John Charles McNeill

    Tear-marks stain from page to page
    This book my fathers left to me,—
    So dull that nothing but its age
    Were worth its freight across the sea.

    But tear stains! When, by whom, and why?
    Thus takes my fancy to its wings;
    For grief is old, and one may cry
    About so many things!
