RADDON COURT             WHEN I COME BACK TO BILLETS I MEET YOU AGAIN

Sept 14 1917                   With your tommy askew on your heart;

                                          I forget all the mud, and the toil in the rain,

                                          When I think of the things we'd said.

                                                          ~~~~~

                                        If we meet in the Cafe you used to frequent

                                       (We'd have met there before once or twice)

                                          When nothing we murmured would ever be meant

                                        And you'd wallow in chocolates and ice

                                                      ~~~~~~~~~~

                                        But you sit up aloft, and you're giving the"eye?

                                       There's  a glass at your pink finger -tips;

                                       And you're looking at me with a glance that is shy

                                       And a damned lucky straw in your tips!

[next page]

                    Small service is true service while it lasts

                    Of friends however humble scorn not one

                    The daisy by the shadow that it casts

                     Protects the lingering dewdrop from the sun

                                        With best wishes from
