Warm Hospitality
"Where warm hospitality ever was host"

 
 
 

Pictures from Memory's Wall
p. 11
 

XXXVII.     

From homes where Refinement was never a stranger,

   Where warm Hospitality ever was host,

These people there gathered - by caste unaffected -

For worth and not mammon, they valued the most.

XXXVIII.     

There, hands that were callous'd by hard, honest labor,

   Were c.???ed with a fervor that spoke of the heart;

And told that in losses, in trials, misfortunes,

   Each cheerfully bore for his neighbor, a part.

XXXIX.     

Those faces, now furrowed by Time's rugged coulter

   And sobered by cares of their life's afternoon,

Are faces that then were as bright and as cloudless,

   As days that come only in rose-ladened June.

XL.     

Down deep in the heart of each "member" now living,

   Is cherished each scene of those days that are past;

And friendships then formed and endearments then kindled,

   Will live in our minds and our hearts to the last.
