If Only ----

If only dinner cooked itself,
And groceries grew upon the shelf;
If children did as they were told,
And never had a cough or cold;
And washed their hands, and wiped their
boots,
And never tore their Sunday suits,
But always tidied up the floor,
Nor once forgot to shut the door.

If John remembered not to throw
His papers on the ground. And oh!
If he would put his pipes away,
And shake the ashes on the tray
Instead of on the floor close by;
And always spread his towel to dry,
And hung his hat upon the peg,
And never had bones in his leg.

Then, there's another thing. If Jane
Would put the matches back again
Just where she found them, it would be
A save of time to her and me.
And if she never did forget
To put the dustbin out; nor yet
Contrive to gossip with the baker,
Nor need ten thunderbolts to wake her.

Ahem! If wishes all came true,
I don't know what I'd find to do,
Because if no one made a mess
There'd be no need of cleanliness.
And things might work so blissfully,
In time--who knows?--they'd not need
me!

And this being so, I fancy whether
I'll go on keeping things together.

The Hungry Sea
Down to the sea, the hungry sea, O the sea is hungry ever!Seeking food for the bairns and me,Seeking food in the hungry sea; O the sea is hungry ever!My man and my lad--their bones are white, O the sea is hungry ever!Into the maw of the grim black night,Their hearts were bold and their faces bright; O the sea is hungry ever!The sun was red and the clouds were black, O the sea is hungry
