....one of my own poems


Keep the home fires burning
Keep the hearth open still
Watch out for cold winds
That find us with a chill

Bring a happy glow to those
Whose love you value still
And keep the wolves from the door
And the pie up on the sill
Make a bed for those weary heads
To lay upon and snore!

Send each one you love a kiss~
Those that you adore!
For all through life’s long journey tread
With softness lest you leave
Another’s soul with emptiness
When warmth is what we need!
