When laughter lived at home with me
And joy left not a room for doubt,
I drew a magic circle round
To keep love in, and sorrow out.

But, one day, all was dark and still,
For lads and laughter went away;
And, then, I saw, beyond my door
Were many lads who passed each day.

Some were so eager, some, so frail . . .
Some, troubled . . . some . . . just wondering,
No matter . . . there are ways to spend
My hungry, unused mothering!
