First Line: Welcome, stranger! Glad I greet thee
Last Line: Of sad thoughts that swell thy heart.
Alternate Author Name(s): Tucker, Mary Eliza Perine
Subject(s): Homeless; Mexico


WELCOME, stranger! glad I greet thee,
Welcome to our friendly shore;
Kindred hearts exult to meet thee,
Rest thyself in peace once more.

Think not I ignore the anguish
Which must rack thy soul with pain,
As thou dream'st of those who languish,
Far across the distant main.

No. I, too, am homeless, weary,
Fainting in my worldly strife;
And I know how very dreary
'Tis to be alone in life.

'Tis in sympathy I greet thee;
May my simple words impart
Some ray of light, a ray to cheat thee
Of sad thoughts that swell thy heart.
