"Across the space between to-day 
and those old time Decembers 
I send this little card to say 
One faithful heart remembers."
As you go through life


As You Go Through Life. 
[Poem Text

"The Battle is not of our making, 
And war was never our plan: 
Yet, all that is sweet forsaking, 
We march to it, man by man. 
It is either to smite, or be smitten, 
There's no other choice to-day: 
And we live, as befits the Briton, 
Or we die, as the Briton may." 

"Wilcox" verse series, number 580.

Meet me at the Home Coming Celebration, Washington, Ill., Sept. 2-9, 1912.
by MME. Zoe-Laure De Chatillon 1894 Photogravure 
Described by the historian Ella Wheeler Wilcox: 
"Never since that spectacle of the bleeding Nazarene upon the Cross of Calvary, has the world beheld so terrible a picture of crucified innocence and purity as that of Joan of Arc, the saviour of France, burning in the market-place of Rouen. With her dying breath she cried out...that she had obeyed God.... Her last word was the name of--Jesus."

Just You. 

All the selfish joys of 
earth, I am getting through. 
Only one thing seems of 
worth ---- Just you.. 
Not for me the lonely 
height, and the larger view; 
one thing makes the whole 
world bright -- Just you. 
Not for distant goals I run, 
no great aim pursue; 
All the world to me means - 
one - Just you.

Once Gone, Gone Forever
[from Guilo]
   "We never feel the same emotion twice:  
      No two ships ever ploughed the selfsame billow.  
   The waters change, with every fall and rise;  
      So, Guilo, go contented to thy pillow."
Once Gone, Gone Forever 
[from Guilo]

We never feel the same emotion twice:  
      No two ships ever ploughed the selfsame billow.  
The waters change, with every fall and rise;  
      So, Guilo, go contented to thy pillow. 


"This darling of the Southern Sea, afar 
The great Blue Mountain, worships from his height, 
Sometimes to hide his passion from her sight 
He pins a cloud about him with a star, 
And shuts away the vision of her charms 
Lying encircled by her lover's arms. 
   While high above him, hangs the Southern Cross, 
   To typify his sorrow and his loss."

They are foes to all Virtue, and lead down to shame; 
Shun drink and tobacco and keep your good name. 
Cold water that comes from the well is my drink-- 
The healthiest, purest, and sweetest, I think. 
It never makes drunkards, it never brings woe-- 
I'll praise it, and drink it, wherever I go.
