Massachusetts (Massachusetts, United States) (search for this): chapter 5
eauty and strength! The fire-light flashes and flickers On low white-washed ceiling and wall, And plays on my poor tired fingers, At work with their gray woollen ball. It glimmers and shines on my needles, And lights up the stocking I knit; It's a sock for some volunteer soldier,-- I hope that the stocking will fit! I suppose it will suit in dimensions, For feet of all sizes have marched To go to the help of the nation,-- Long, short, and flat-footed, and arched. And the yarn is from old Massachusetts, And the shape is an excellent hit; So I think it may do good to some one, This gray woollen sock that I knit. I hope it will comfort no traitor, But one that is loyal and true,-- Some brave boy who's left home and fortunes, To fight for the Red, White, and Blue. To his foot, O sock, be thy softest! And never wear out, nor give way; There's none to do darning and mending Down there in the midst of the fray. Protect him from cold and from dampness, And soften the hard leather shoe; And on

with thy duty performed; Till the season is turned into summer, And the last rebel stronghold is stormed. Let no knitting of mine be surrendered On a soldier afraid of the fight, Or be dropped by the way, or borne homeward, In some needless and panic-struck flight. The swift-rolling ball in my basket, Like destiny seems to unwind; One vision comes up as I widen, And one as I narrow and bind. Shall my sock be sent off to Missouri, For some of our brave Western boys? Or down to Port Royal and Beaufort, Where Sherman is making a noise? Or off to the old sea-girt Fortress,-- Or where, on Potomac's bright shore, There are regiments drilling and waiting For the word to go forward once more. Perchance this soft fabric, when finished, May cherish an invalid's foot; Or, in some wild scamper of horsemen, Lie hid in a cavalry boot. Perchance it may be taken prisoner, And down into Rebeldom borne; Peradventure — alas! the poor stocking-- It may by some rebel be worn! It may be cut through with

fancies, In the volunteer sock that I knit. It is all full of prayers and good wishes; Stitch by stitch, as I knit, they're wrought in; In my heart burns the love of the Union-- On my breast is a Stars-and-Stripes pin; So if ever a sock could be loyal, And for a brave volunteer fit, As well as soft, warm, and elastic, It must be this sock that I knit. Ah, if I could only make blankets! They should be of the warmest and best; No night-wind should trouble the soldier, While my blankets lay light on his breast. And I wish that my hands could work faster, And for every gray sock could knit two,-- You men who go forth to the battle Don't know what the women would do. And perchance — who can tell?--the young soldier May turn out a hero, and fight His way to the heart of the Nation, As well as to glory's grand height; And then, when his camp-chest is treasured, And his uniform hung up with care, Like Washington's, guarded and cherished, My gray woollen sock may be there!

5. the socks that I knit. by A. L. 'Tis a clear twilight time in November, With the day passing on into night; In the west fades the glow of the evening, In the east shines the moon, cold and white; The trees, like the nation, have parted With summer's soft riches at length; But now, see the wonderful structure, So glorious in beauty and strength! The fire-light flashes and flickers On low white-washed ceiling and wall, And plays on my poor tired fingers, At work with their gray woollen ball. It glimmers and shines on my needles, And lights up the stocking I knit; It's a sock for some volunteer soldier,-- I hope that the stocking will fit! I suppose it will suit in dimensions, For feet of all sizes have marched To go to the help of the nation,-- Long, short, and flat-footed, and arched.
