Forty-five years ago when the man was young and the Henry Rifle was new

(1/4) > >>


Forty-five years ago when the old man was young
   The Henry Rifle was new;
And thru all the years has the pioneer clung
   To the gun as a friend proven true,
For the Henry has shortened the wolf’s thieving life,
   And taken its toll of the deer;
And in troublous times it protected the wife
   And babes of the young pioneer.
Now life lies behind them – yet love smiles between –
   The glow of the sunset grows dim,
But warm is the light and the prairies are green
   In the place where she is waiting for him.
.   .    .   .    .    .    .    .    .    .    .    .    .    .    .    .    .    .    .
The rifle comes down from the antlers where hung,
   Together they pass in review;
The forty-five years since the old man was young
   And the Henry rifle was new.

Circa 1918
