Rhymes of a RoughneckMy boy's come back; he's here at last;

He came home on a special train.

My longing and my ache are past,

My only son is back again.

He's home with music, flags and flowers;

With peace and joy my heart's abrim;

He got here in the morning hours

With half the town to welcome him.To hush my grief, night after night,

How I have digged my pillow deep,

And it would be the morning light

Before I sobbed myself to sleep.

And how I used to stare and stare

Across the harbour's yeasty foam,

Thinking he's fighting far out there . . .

But now with bells my boy's come home.There's Mrs. Burke, she has her Ted,

But less the sight of his two eyes;

And Mrs. Smith - you know her Fred -

They took his legs off at the thighs.

How can these women happy be,

For all their bravery of talk,

One with a son who cannot see,

One with a boy who'll never walk.I should be happier than they;

My lad came back without a scar,

And all the folks are proud they say,

To greet their hero of the war.

So in the gentle eventide

I'll give God thanks my Bert's come home. . . .

As peacefully I sit beside

His tiny mound of new-turned loam.
