1905 Excerpt: ...and you. 'Tis now 'bout time to go to bed, So I'll
have to close this script; And papa just now said to me That what I
wrote, I writ. However, you can write to me, And tell me when
you're coming; And by and by, when you get home, You'll find us all
a bumming. BY AND BY LAND. EVLYN BURRILL HOXIg. 'TfHERE'S a
wonderful land, that we talk about; Vl In our leisure moments, we
sigh, And tell of the things we are going to do, "Some day,"
"before long" "by and by." There are deeds of goodness, we want to
do, And reform we are going to make, "But not now," "not today,"
"Oh no," Not 'til we've more time to Take. And in-fancy we look
toward "By and By" Land, With its silvery, laughing rills, And
singing birds in sun-kissed vales, And shadowy, purple hills. But
the road is crooked to "By and By" Land, The crookedest under the
sun, 'Tis covered with promises never kept. And deeds that were
never done. Its harbor is full of skeleton ships, With cargoes of
broken hopes; And vanished dreams lie all among The scattered sails
and ropes. "By and By" Land was never reached, By mortal yet, and
'twill never be; 'Tis farther away than the farthest place, And its
shores we shall never see. And ever we dream of treasures ahead,
And fritter the hours away; Regardless of good things at hand. And
of what is our own today. VOICE OF THE SOUL. MRS. M. E. ROBERTSON.
EEL me, my secret soul, Ol, tell me, Hope and Faith, Is there no
resting place From sorrow, sin and death? Is there no happier spot
Where mortals may be blessed, . Where grief may find a balm, And
weariness a rest? Faith, Hope and Love, Best boons to mortals
given, Waved their bright wings, and whispered--"Yes, in Heaven."
