CHAPTERS FROM LIFE:
A TALE OF "OUR BAYLOR"
WINIFRED A. CHEANEY
"A commonplace life, we say, and we sigh;
But why should we sigh as we say ?
The commonplace sun in the commonplace sky
Makes up the commonplace day.
The moon and the stars are commonplace things;
The flower that blooms, and the bird that sings;
But sad were the world, and dark our lot,
If the flowers failed and the sun shone not,
And God, who sees each separate soul,
Out of commonplace lives makes his beautiful whole."
"There is no end to the sky,
And the stars are everywhere,
And time is eternity,
And the here is over there;
For the common deeds of the common day
Are ringing bells in the far away."
THE BRYANT PRINTING COMPANY
FLORENCE, MASS., 1898
