Welcome To a Stranger

Lady, thou camest from a stranger land,
And little of thee I know;
Yet thou art joined to the fading band
Of travelers here below.
And thou art of woman's form and mien,
Hast a woman's heart within;
And, by thine eye and thy brow,
I ween Her sorrows with thee have been.
Thy Father is mine, and mine is thine;
We both are his equal care;
His goodness, and love, and blessings benign,
We each as his children share.
In sympathy, then, I give thee a hand
And greet thee as thus we go,
And pledge a renewal in that bright land
Where pleasures perennial grow.
~Mrs. Jane E. Locke
