At a recent meeting of the Epworth league of the Covenant M. E. church, at which Dr. E. E. Faulkner presided, the subject, "Home and Its Influences on Children" was discussed. Following is an original poem read by the leader:
There's a spot we all remember,
Locked with memory's golden key,
Where as children once we gathered,
Where we played at mother's knee.
Years have brought their joys and sorrows,
Golden hair now silvery gray,
From those home ties still we gather,
Strength to help us on our way.
Though earth's trials so oft oppress us,
While on earth these years we roam,
A few years and all is over;
Sitting on the great white throne,
Christ with all the hosts of heaven
Welcomes us to home, sweet home.
--Dr. E. E. Faulkner.
