And I step outside the tents and every. thing is fresh with dew, When it's reveille in the morning, dear,my thoughts then turn to you. t When it's seven fifteen in the morning, the sick call then is heard, You roll up your right sleeve and walk in without word, They jab a needle in your arm, and they make you like it top. Then to make the misery lighter,love. my thoughts then turn to you. When it's seven thirty and drill call and everyone gets in line, It's squads right and four left, quick and double time, When I am tired, worn and weary, just sore, through and through, It makes it all seem lighter, girl, for my thoughts then turn to you, When it's eleven thirty and recall from both drill and work, Both of which the infantry have never been known to shirk, And I come back to my quarters. then of course, don't feel so blue, For now it's time for rest, no, I just sit and think of you.. When it's one-fifteen in the afternoon, and unearthly sound is made, It's nothing in the world, but fatigue call, get a shovel or spade And try to make this hill-top look like the valley do, It makes the old pick lighter, love, when my thoughts turn back to you. When it's live-thirty in the evening and retreat and all is done, And I sit and smoke my pipe and watch the setting of the sun, And I watch the smoke above the pipe forming rings so round and blue I see a face in each ring, my love, S and of course, the face is you. When it's ten o'clock at night and taps are blown, so vet y low, I lay awake a thinking ft the time not long ago. And all my though s are of one girl, of 8 whom I know is true, Then I go to sleep, dream, and all my dreams are then of you. But, when the German's stop their murdering and raiding on the sea, And the submarines are all sunk and the German soldiers flee, And the Kaiser doffs his helmet to the old red, white and blue, With the rest of this victorious bunch, then I return to you. -Mrs. E. F. Hardcastle. Chlna's boy emperer is only eleven years old, but Ile sponsors in the re cent conspiracy to put him back on the throne were old enough to have known better.
