Good Housekeeping, October 15, 1887. p. 291.
My first is a master at times, or a slave,
Its sound bringing terror at dead of the night;
The men who subdue it are brazest of brave,
And fight hard to o'ercome it, although it be light.
My second the birds do, if they're so inclined;
Men fight it, although it is far from their size;
A paper is printed for them, and I find
They're considered a blessing, although in disguise.
My all you may see on a bright summer night
Outside of the house, and about on the grass,
Shedding at intervals sparkles of light
Not made by man's hands, nor confined under glass.
From "Good Housekeeping," January 19, 1889, p. 141
In all this old world's days and years,

And when the Autumn, gray, appears,
My last (misspelled), how sad it is!
But sure my whole the heart endears,
Which it described, —how glad it is!
