THE WAITER

  • BRILLIANT with mirrors, dim with crimson light,
  • Gorgeous with gold, with marble statues wan,—
  • This was our dining‐room, and here upon
  • The velvet chairs we all sat down that night
  • We dined with Uncle John.
  • To many men the trump of battle calls,
  • Others in books seek their felicity,—
  • No blame to them, indeed, but oh to be
  • A gracious waiter in those shining halls
  • Were bliss enough for me!
