KNITTING FOR THE SOLDIERS. By Mary J. Upshur.
Knitting- for the soldiers .
How the needles fly! Now with sounds of merriment—
Now with many a sigh!
Knitting* for the soldiers!
Panoply for feet— Onward, bound to victory!
Rushing in retreat!
Knitting for the soldiers !
Wrinkled—aged crone, Plying flying needles
By the ember stone.
Crooning ancient ballads,
Rocking to and fro, In your sage divining,
Say where these shall go?
Jaunty set of stockings,
Neat from top to toe, March they with the victor?
Lie with vanquished low ?
