Winter Serenade

20thmeband.jpg

      At midnight, a brass band which I think came on an incoming train played some five or six pieces, the last of which was “Home Sweet Home.” As the familiar strains of the grand old piece stole through the midnight air they seemed to me like sweet echoes from the bending skies which wake a thousand thoughts of other days, of home and friends far away, that perhaps I will never see again; of happy scenes in the peaceful days of childhood that now return no more; all rushed in solemn troops through  my memory as sadly as a weird night wind that sighs and moans through the strings of a broken harp.
