I’m very, very, lonely, and sad as one
Since all my friends of "Fifty-Four’’

I came right at the first, freezing in
When we toiled and moiled as if for
Oh! Those were the days, I must con
When We stayed with the job with
out much rest.
At first we were few, with so much
And like a big family, our crowd
So oft’ the days were cold and dreary,
Yet our work ne’er let us grow
And there were days of beautiful sun
That glistened so bright among the
Then there were days where the ice'
flows bellowing ran,
And so deep wag th© mud, that over
us placed a ban.
How we all did bear the aggrava
W'ith nothing else to do, l)ut smile
to our patients.
Those days are gone, but I trust '.vs'li
In spite of our hardships how glad
I am-you to have met.
And now tonight with the trail? stii!
untrod. , *
It whines in my heart-strings, m
Thee, oh, God!
Now how strange everything to 'v.>
Since the dear nurses of Futy-
Four’’ are no longer here.
I long for you girls—my friends one
Only to realize that you have an
swered the call.
’Mid wind and storm which have les
sons to teach,
It is useless for me, I cannot put
For there’s a cry from out the lone
Begging for you, "Fifty-Four,' to
My heart still aches since the bnte •
It’s the lure of your voices; the
mandate of the woods.
It’s for you dear "Fifty-Four’’ I'm
And I pray m'y friends you’ll ma'.re
Now, fare you well, dear "Fifty-Four,'
My friends as I have said oefore,
1 hope we all again shall meet.
I trust to God you all to greet.
