The Fallow Deer At The Lonely House

One without looks in tonight
Through the curtain-chink
From the sheet of glistening white;
One without looks in tonight
As we sit and think
By the fender-brink.

We do not discern those eyes
Watching in the snow;
Lit by lamps of rosy dyes
We do not discern those eyes
Wandering, aglow
Four-footed, tiptoe.

manual work, what songs were sung by sinew and muscle, by honest sweat hard work, invested in labour done well; how this sings of love for life, for gratitude appreciation for the work of the hands, faith in all hands to the well, contributing to a common prosperity, when workers earned their pay and were paid in an appropriate living wage
As long as America sings; as long as families sing; as long as people of all stripes and persuasions sing their own song in their own way; we shall ever be America. Let's keep singing, in the rain or fair weather, let's keep singing.
