               As I come back

    Down the street flags adorning

Half seeing all the pomp for sight of you

Foretaste I'll know of gladsome day a-borning

For us, come out of night at last to morning

From the Long Trail that terminates for two.

"Oh but I will come back to you, my Mother!

Wounded? Why no!........... I will come back"!

                                  Arthur McKeogh

                                       Lt. Inf

   ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

When Pvt. Mugrums Parlay Voos

I can count my francs an' santeems-

If I've got a basket near-

An' I speak a wicked "bon jour"

But the verbs are awful queer

An' I lose a lot o' pronouns

When I try to talk to you,

For your eyes are so bewitchin'

I forgot to parlay voo.

     ~~~~~~~~~~~

In your pretty little garden

With the bench beside the wall

An' the sunshine on the asters

An' the purple phlox so tall,
