Tha Llttla Back Room Uptalr5.
Tis a snered place where a mother's heart
Hides the treasures no gold can-buy
Away from the busy world apnrt,
From the gaze of the careless eye.
Olt when the burden too heavy grows
To the shrine of her love she lares,
Aud finds sweet rest at tho long day's close
In the little batk room upstairs.
A broken bat in the corner stands
Where he left It one holiday;
Fmooth worn by clasp of his boyish hands
Ere he kissed her and went away.
Ah, tho boy alio kitscd a lond goodbye
When he laced with a smile life's cares
How oltcn the tears bedim her eyes
In the little back room upstairs.
A broken drum and a Noah's ark,
And a trumpet with buttered bell,
Aro laid away in the corner dark;
But euch has a tale to tell
The mother who when her heart is sore,
Seeks a solace for all her cares
In the broken toys that strew the floor
Ol the little back room upstairs.
Oh, dear the relics sho hides away
From the gaze ol the thoughtless tbrong,
And wets with lears at the close of day
When the grim twilight la long.
A holy place where the mother heart
Finds a balm lor tho pnin it bears,
For her dead bubo's toys have a sacred part
In the little back room upstairs.
Alone she steals to the sacred shrine
When the toil of tho day Is done,
And as the tears in her dear eyes shine
Sho is kissing them one by one.
Alone? Not so; lor the mother-heart
In midst of its earnest prayers, . r
Knows God In Ills goodness hasa part
In the little backroom upstairs. .,
