Post-vacational

You have heard that mildewed story,
That tradition horned and hoary,
That it wearies one to roam,
Past a doubt;
That one vainly on vacation
Tries to find recuperation,
Till he hunts his happy home
Tuckered out.

That abroad there is no comfort,
That a man must journey home for 't--
You have heard that whiskered wheeze,
Have you not?
'Tis a commonplace to cavil
At the "luxuries of travel,"
For in travel lack of ease
Is your lot.

You have heard that gag historic;
It was often sprung by Yorick;
It's as old as Noah's ark
And its crew.
It's the commonest (at basis)
Of all common commonplaces;--
So I merely would remark
That--it's true.

Ballade Of The Pipesmoke Carry
The Ancient Wood is white and still, Over the pines the bleak wind blows, Voiceless the brook and mute the rill, Silence too where the river flows. Still I catch the scent of the rose And hear the white-throat's roundelay, Footing the trail that Memory knows, Over the hills and far away. I have only a pipe to fill: Weaving, wreathing rings disclose A trail that flings straight up the hill,
