ILLUSTRATIONS
This hearth was built for thy delight—	Frontispiece
And by a friend's bright gift of wine,
I dedicate this house of mine	23
And of all man's felicities—	33
A little world he feels and sees:
His mother's arms, his mother's knees—	39
The 5:42	47
And Daddy once said he would like to be me
Having cocoa and animals once more for tea!	53
But heavy feeding complicates
The task by soiling many plates	59
How ill avail, on such a frosty night	65
The old swimmer	69
But Katie, the cook, is more splendid than all—	73
Perhaps it's a ragged child crying	79
The Balloon Peddler	85
If you appreciate it more
Than I—why don't return it!	87
And then one night—	93
The human cadence and the subtle chime
Of little laughters—	95
What years of youthful ills and pangs and bumps—	103
A Birthday	109
You must be rigid servant of your art!	123
You came, and impudent and deuce-may-care
Danced where the gutter flamed with footlight fire	127
Hostages	135
My eyes still pine for the comely line
Of an outbound vessel's hull	155
A man ain't so secretive, never cares
What kind of private papers he leaves lay—	165
Mounted Police	177
Courtesy	183
The Plumpuppets	189
... It's hard to have to tell
How unresponsive I have found her	195
... When you see, this Great First Time,
Lit candles on a Christmas Tree!	201
The music box	207
Solugubrious	217
In the midnight, like yourself,
I explore the pantry shelf!	221
The Twins	227
O praise me not the country	233
The wail of sickly children—	239
Ah, does the butcher—heartless clown—
Beget that shadow on her brow?	245
