Pictures from Memory's Wall
p. 5
 

XIII.     

Alas, that this picture should be but a fancy,

   A phantom, illusive as forms in a dream;

No voices to welcome, no hand-c.??? in greeting,

   But silence, unbroken, still reigning supreme.

XIV.     

Then back to the village in gladness returning,

   To days when for countryside, this was the mart,

To store where we gathered in nightly assemblies

   And joined in the laughter that lightened the heart.

XV.     

The weather, the crops and approaching elections

   Were weighed and discussed by the elderly swain;

In sports, sure to test all their skill and endurance,

   The younger contended, the mast'ry to gain.

XVI.     

I sigh for those days and their innocent pleasures,

   When village and farm were esteemed at their worth;

Ere "life in the city," its glitter and glamour

   Had robbed rural homes of contentment and mirth.
