WILL PAPA NEVES COME?
fBy Anson A. Card, author of "The National
Hymn to tbe Hw." the -Cuban Battle Hymn.
and other poems, j
Mamma, will papa never come
You said the ntrbt was o tr.
You read us bow that awful bill
Tbey took mid cannons' roar.
Why does be star away
W baa now we want him bare!
The fight 1 dona, our Sm waves hiph.
Kal-ed there "mid many a cheer.
The country doa not need him now.
He went at its nrat call:
And. mamma, when tbe war la done
It cannot aeed them all!
Oh God." in awful anguish cried, '
That mother s heart beat wild:
"Your papa, darlintr. ne'er will oome.
To greet bis waiting child."
Your papa foutrht "mid shot and shell
Up. up that awful hill.
The leaden ball fell thick and fast.
Its mission was to kill.
He climbs tbe bill with ne'er a scathe.
And plants our country's pride.
He plants our flat;, his comrades see.
And cheer before they died.
"The war will soon be over now,"
Your papa wrote with glee,
IH oon be home, tell Bessie
She can sit and wateh for me.
She can sit and wait my coming
With the bows adowo the street.
We're coming home with honors.
Our darling ones to greet.
We're fought our conn try's battles
We'll bare our breasts no more.
For now tbe war is over.
And we'll leave this stricken shore."
They waited for his enminir, .
Tbey waited long In vain.
He missed tbe Spanish bullets.
He missed tbeir iron rain.
But when the fight was over,
Wltb all the battles won,
A fiercer ttgbt was on bim.
Beneath that Cuoan sun.
He raved with burning fever
No band was there to save.
And yet he battled on alone.
He'd win e'en against the grave.
Tbe crisis past- "I'll see them yet,"
His thoughts now wander botue.
He sees bis waiting Bessie
Who cried: -Dear papa's come."
'Boys, I'm so hungry
I crave some dainty food.
When fighting as a soldier.
Kven 'bard tack' tasted good. '
This fight is not a soldier's
I'm stricken down so low,
Tbat I cannot gain the summit.
It my country does not show.
Some kindness, in my weakness.
Some relief in time of need.
In mv strength I asked no favors
Will tbey now my weakness heed1"
"No food? Why boys I am starving.
This cannot, oannot be.
Tbey told us we were fighting
To set tbe starring free.
Would our land so rich in plenty
See me die here all alone;
It has fought to sare tbe starving
Will it stoop to starve Its own:
'Boys. I'm growing, growing weaker.
I haven t long to stay
Tell my wife and little Bessie.
Tbat I think of them and pray
"That thU grand and glor'ous country
Will for them have better care.
Than it has for the starving soldiers
Who have died its arms to bear."
And tbe red tape keeps agrinding,
Grinding out the lives of men:
Men who ve lost their little Bessies
In tbe cities, hills and glen.
Can the men of callous conscience'
r ma excuse to longer waiif
Save tbe starving, help tbe dying.
For, 'tis written: "Helpeth too late!"
