There are many, nh, so many, for whom the dawn light full. On barren fields of bitterness, and mocking, empty walls. Some are wenry with false hopings, some are bound by crippled feet, Some are mother-hearted, yearning for losl foot falls down the street; Some are sick for dreams long vanquished, some for quest ings never known; Some have lost a comrade's shoulder niul must take the road alone. Little, watching wistful windows-* white farms ringed with Northern fir, Pillared portico and lattice where the jnsmincd dusk winds stir; Bless the patience nnd the wailing with the tread of homing fet't, Pour the wretched and the weary. wine of courage golden-sweet.

Those who watch from wistful windows i Lord, look down on them we pray, Let Thy love and comfort fold them, and their hearts keep holiday. —Selected.
