Another Journey


Oh Father! must I travel again in time,
To set the clock in verse and rhyme.
To make the waves to play,
My tassel to wear and fray.

Oblige the gull in the dark open cave,
teaching the muse one soul to save.
Cackling in admiration or torment,
Who knows why the gull was sent.

At night the fire keeps away the bats,
By day the lice and pestering gnats.
Whose shadow could peak into my cloak,
and see the ember which was spoke.

When cinders collapse under the weight,
The fire goes down as is its fate.
My soul passes into future prayers,
The whiteness of my youthful hairs.

Padre! what place is this,
another life and oceans kiss.
Another wave, a newer sun,
Another life has begun.

Go on Another,
Journey.

THE CHANCELLOR mused as he nibbled his pen

And said, “I can summon a million of men
To fight for their country and Kaiser;
