Fire Song


When the wild cry of fire is heard
Borne on the midnight air,
And those who listen soon are stirred
To anxious ask "Where? Where?"
Our Firemen brave, full bent to save,
Rush to their engine room;
And flushed with hope they grasp each rope,
And with the "Rescue" come.

CHO.--Hurrah, then! for the firemen brave!
Who with stout hearts and arms
Are bent our lives and goods to save--
Not fearing fire's alarms.

While still the cry is going round,
And bells peal forth their notes,
The engine comes with rumbling sound,
Dragged by our bold "Red Coats."
And there too, rush, as if they'd crush
The ground on which they tread,
The band of "Hook and Ladder," who look
Truly devoid of dread!

CHO.--Hurrah, boys! for the fire brigade--
The men resolved to stand
In danger's front and bear the brunt
Of this foe to our land.

When fire is reached and water got;
In haste the hose they lay;
They fall to work, each brave "red coat,"
By night as well as day.
And now the hook and ladder boys--look!
Have made their "grapples" fast
To that huge frame midst glowing flame,
And down it comes at last.

CHO.--Hurrah, then! for the Fire Brigade,
Who heed not flame and smoke;
They work as though such working made
The zest of some good joke!

(The end)

The Fire Alarm
Fire--fire--fire! Nigher still and nigher Seem the tones of the "Alarum bell" borne on the air!Awaking with a start, what a sinking of the heart Even the strong are apt to feel, ere they are well aware!Fire--fire--fire! Higher now and higher Leaps the madly raging flames as the cry goes round!In the darkness of the night what a truly awful sight Is the burning up of homes, while we listen to the sound.Fire--fire--fire! Behold the havoc dire! When the black, wreathing smoke a moment clears away--The flames both hiss and roar as the brave firemen pour

The Dog
I can't talk dog an' he can't talk man, Yit Rover an' me, we onderstan'; I wag my tongue an' he wags 'is tail, An' Love explains whar grammars fail. An' we ain't by ourselves in dat, in dat-- No, we ain't by ourselves in dat.(The end)Ruth McEnery Stuart's poem: Dog
