Sore grief is in its place.

Billy, He's In Trouble
I've got a letter, parson, from my son
away out west,
An' my oF heart's as heavy as an anvil
in my breast,
To think the boy who's futur' I had
once so proudly planned
Should wander from the path o' right
an' come to such an end!
I told him when he left us, only three
short years ago,
He'd find himself a plowin' in a mighty
crooked row—
He'd miss his father's counsels, and his
mother's prayers, too;
But he said the farm was hateful, an'
he guessed he'd have to go.
I know thar's big temptation for a
youngster in the west,
But I believed our Billy had the courage
to resist;
An' when he left I warned him o' the
ever-waitin' snares
That lie like hidden sarpints in life's
pathway everywheres.
Our Bill, he promised faithful to be
keerful, an' allowed
He'd build a reputation that'd make us
mighty proud;
Rllt. it. sepms ns hnw mv cnnn«nl onrt n'
faded from his mind,
A.n' now Bill's in trouble of the very
worstest kind!
His letters come so seldom that I some
how sort o' knowed
rhat Billy was a trampin' on a mighty
rocky road: ι
But I never once imagined he would
bow my head in shame,
A.n' in the dust would waller his ol'
daddy's honored name.
He writes from out in Denver, and the
story's mighty short:
[ just can't tell his mother: it'd crush I
her poor ol' heart;
\n' so I reckoned, parson, you might
break the news to her—
3ill's in the legislatur', but he doesn't
say what fur.
