Select Poetry. COMING HOME. [Newspaper Article] — The Bowral Free Press — 21 June 1884
COMING HOME, Tnn fire burns redly in the grate, I scarcely heed it ns I wait, Its light I scarcely eco; But now a liasty step I hoar, And turn to meet the ono most dear In all the world to me, " It is a stormy winter night," He says; "■ but here are warmth and light. How sweet it is to be In ono's own homo, to see your faco, The sunshine of the doarest place In all the world to me." Yet ono hath had ambitions dreams Of Fame ; and ono laid oareful schomesi How Fortune might bo won. But, oh, the light of home is worth All songs that Fame hath sung on earth» And all that gold hath done !
