The following poem was composed by J. C. Harris, of the Fourth Com pany Potomac, Fort Washington, Maryland, while on sentry duty Christmas eve from 12 to 2 a. m., and was dedicated to his mother: It was one dark and stormr night, And the rain was falling fast, A lonely Sentry walked his post And he was thinking of the past. His thoughts were of his dear little mother, As she had tried not to shed a tear, When he went to Join the colors, And was known as a volunteer. The night was the eve of Christmas, And his thoughts were homeward turned, To that precious little mother, F6r whom his heart did yearn. A tear came trickling down his cheek, But it was not of fear; " For he had Joined the colors. And was known as a volunteer. And as the Sentry walked back and forth He felt while he was there, That his dear mother was not asleep But was with him, that nighty in 1 prayer. For her thoughts, he knew, were of him, And it brought him Christmas cheer; And he was proud he had joined the colors,' And was known as a volunteer. v Milk in Winter.
