And tries to hide her fedin's, and I

And laughed an' waved their "hellos"
to all they knew in town.

The clock here on the mantel is tickin'
sad and low.
"They can't come home for Christmas.
They're not a-com?V. No!"
And mother at the window looks out
and down the lane,,
?nd I stare at my paper-but stare
at it in vain.
