The Broken Drum

There is sorrow in the household;
There's a grief too hard to bear;
There's a little cheek that's
There's a sobbing baby there

Lemon Pie

The world is full of gladness, There are joys of many kinds,
There's a cure for every sadness, That each troubled mortal finds
And my little cares grow lighter And I cease to fret and sigh,
And my eyes with joy grow brighter When sh...

Cant

Can't is the worst word that's written or spoken;
Doing more harm here than slander and lies;
On it is many a strong spirit broken,
And with it many a good purpose dies

Memorial Day

The finest tribute we can
Unto our hero dead to-day,
Is not a rose wreath, white and red,
In memory of the blood they shed;

Memory

I stood and watched him playing,    A little lad of three,
And back to me came straying    The years that used to be;
In him the boy was Maying    Who once belonged to me

He tells us children every day Just what should now be done
He knows the way to fix the trusts, He has a simple plan;
But if the furnace needs repairs, We have to hire a man...

When Father Shook The Stove

'Twas not so many years ago,
Say, twenty-two or three,
When zero weather or below Held many a thrill for me
