Into n link with four Weak walls,
That blazed with a glaro llko midday light,
Where novor a shadow of sorrow falls.
Somebody's iludo stiolled In ono night;
Homebody's iludo so joung and so white,
Wearing upon his Innocent fnco
Never n sign of manhood's might.
But his scarf pin showed a suspicion of pa'to.
Carefully combed are his raven emit,
1 hat llabtly llo on his dcllcnto bialu,
And In his lingers ho languidly twirls
In ceaseless motion a gold-headed cane;
Somebody carefully combed his hair;
Was It his mother, whoso sight now fades
Was It n blushing maiden fair,
Or a barber as black us tho nco or spades?
Them's never a doubt ho Is somebody's pet;
Somcbodj's heart has enshrined him thcro;
Mil) he tho iludo has n father )ct,
Or a mother who waits at tho head of tho
Jfnybo a maiden, w Ith cheek of roo,
Is sadly awaiting tho missing link,
Anil tin ru ho stands In it beautiful pose.
In tho glamour and glai oof tho skating rink.
Hut theto romos a man full of honeyed gullo
And fastens tho cruel skates to his feet,
And stands asldo with a cwilcnl smllo,
And wait, for his head his heels to meet.
Kiss him onco for his ginndmothcr's sake;
It's doubtful If ever sho kisses him more;
The skates fioin his feet mi tendeily tako,
Sweep out tho debris and closo tho door.
