Far Flung Hopes

Little Fay the house sparrow:
"If equal affection cannot be, let the more loving one be me."


The Rocket Book. Peter Newell. Harper & Brothers, New York, 1912.
When Fritz, the Janitor’s bad kid,Went snooping in the basement,He found a rocket snugly hidBeneath the window casement.He struck a match with one fell swoop;Then, on the concrete kneeling,He lit the rocket and—she—oop!It shot up through the ceiling.

When Fritz, the Janitor’s bad kid,
Went snooping in the basement,
He found a rocket snugly hid
Beneath the window casement.
He struck a match with one fell swoop;
Then, on the concrete kneeling,
He lit the rocket and—she—oop!
It shot up through the ceiling.
