(With apologies to Kudyard Kipling)
When Earth's last kettle is spotless,
and the dishcloths twisted and
When the oldest grease-spot has faded,
and the youngest dust-germ has
We shall rest, and faith we shall need
it; lie down for an aeon or two,
With never a shrill alarm-clock to set
us to ivork anew.
And those who were neat shall be hap
py, they shall sit on a cushion!
Each weary and separate Martha so
cumbered about with care.
They shall have real leisure to draw
from, with never a store-man s
And feet shall have done from aching,
and never be tired at all.
With never a caller to gossip, and nev
er a neighbor to blame,
And ao one need scrimp on pennies or
care for her housewife fame.
But each forever and ever, in a separ
ate star alone,
Shall do the Things She Has Longed
to, in Time That Is All Her Own!
A maiden twin'd a Christmas wreath

A wreath tied with a Yuletide bow and
A maiden sent a message sweet to me,
Yke Christmas Spirit knows so well to
Their jglowing corals and their lustrous
The holly and the mistletoe have shed.
My wreath is green as Springtide's
deepest dell,
While other Christmas greens have
