The Sunny Side
(25 April 1854 – 3 November 1926 / Ontario)

The Sunny Side

Two newsboys stood where warehouse shade
Fell on the sidewalk chill and dun,

And left the long and splendid street
One half in shadow, half in sun ;

They saw the belt of color wide,

Then hied them to the sunny side.

Ah ! what a change ! They left behind
The chill of winter, dark and raw,

And stood a moment after where
The air is thrilling with a thaw ;

They glance where shadows chill abide ;

Then laugh upon the sunny side.

And soon adown the sounding street,
Their voices sounding like a gong,

They dart along with flying feet

And shout the welcome newsboy song ;

But thro' the city far and wide

They always keep the sunny side.
