"ONLY A TRAMP." L written on an incident reported to have recently occurred in the city of New York. Only a tramp," despised and forlorn, Of earth he inherits but hatred and scorn. Only a tramp is the title he claims, In the deserts of earth, though heavenward he aims. Only a tramp," weak, weary, and worn, Fate doomed that he no living can earn. Only a tramp" now aged and sad, With no one to love him, none maketh him glad. Only a tramp on death river's shore, Over its waves soon, soon I'll be o'er." Only a tramp," a wreck and refuse, I Arrested for vagranoy's law to abuse. Only a tramp," with his judge he doth plead For life in a dungeon—for rest he doth need. -01 Only a tramp," to a dungeon he's led, But a vision of joy he espies overhead- ILugelic the form in the skies far above, Now beckons him home to the land of sweet love. Only a tramp," but in ecstasy wild, My wife he says, gaspiug, then lovingly smiled. What of thy wife ? She's in heaven," he sighs My wife and he staggers, now never to rise. A tramp was he ? Yea, and a saint in disguise His bride of young days called him homo to the skies. 4f A tramp nevermore on his pathway of woes, Bat a pair of bright stars in heaven's firmament glows. On midnight of grief burst the noonday so bright, And sorrow's sting ushered the heavenly light. Utica, N.Y. M.C.R.
