ONLY A TRAMP.

“Only a tramp waa killed," they say,
“A ragged tramp;" ha lias today

And cmitM itrangera pass tha place
To game upon the etfll, eold face
By want and hunger Taxed no more.

With ham and hay at night
And dreamt and notbmg mora.

And miaaien la his Master's name
To do hii people good.
Ha shanoad tha labor aad the strife,
And would net lift tha of Ufa,
Bat bagged frpm men hie feed.
It’s tramp away tha light.
With eold. wot ground at night, ’
And morning without food.
Tha mid-night wreck, the fearful din,
A tramp tha darkened ear within.
Aad death alone, and God.
And wherefore not sineo hope U dead.
And love and faith forever fled.
While earth in vain ha tredt
It’s tramp away the tight.
It’s (teal s* ride at night.
Aad the wrack of death and God.
Without a woman’* tears or eong
They hurry the mangled form along,
The potter’s field Ua and.
Ha’s Just a tramp, and euly one,
With none to lava, and lowed by
And death without a friend.
It's tire reeling car by night.
And tha wrack before the light,
And death without a friend.
