THE LOESOME ROAD.BY May Riley Smith.When the crickets chirp in the evening,And the stars flash out in the sky,I sit in my lonely doorwayAnd watch the children go by.I look at their fresh young faces,And hark to each merry word.For to me, a child's own languageIs the sweetest e'er was heard.And so, I sit in my doorwayIn the hour that I love the best,And think, as I see them passing,My child will come with the rest :Think, when I hear the clickingOf the little garden gate.My darhng's hand is upon it — Oh, why has she come so late ?But the days have been slowly weavingTheir warp of toil in my life ;The weeks have rolled on me their burdenOf waiting and patience and strife ;The flowers that came with the summerHave finished their errand so sweet,And autumn is drooping her harvestsMellow and ripe at my feet.And yet my little girl comes not,And I think she has missed her way,And strayed from this cold, dark countryTo one of perpetual day.
