Not illustrated. 1918 edition. Excerpt: ...Trainman. SOME TIME, SOME WHERE. Some time, when all life's lessons have been learned, And sun and stars forevermore have set, The things which our weak judgment here has spurned, The things o'er which we grieved with lashes wet, Will flash before us out of life's dark night, As stars shine most in deeper tints of blue, And we shall see how all God's plans were right And how what seemed reproof was love most true. And if, some time, commingled with life's wine, We find the wormwood, and rebel and shrink, Be sure a wiser hand than yours or mine Pours out this potion for our lips to drink. And if some friend we love is lying low, Where human kisses cannot reach his face, Oh! do not blame the loving Father so, But bear your sorrow with obedient grace. And you shall shortly know that lengthened breath Is not the sweetest gift God send His friend, And that sometimes the sable pall of death Conceals the fairest boon His love can send.
