Part 1: It is a great thing for a lad
Every Saturday I wrote home
So the next time our business took me to Heathbridge
She sat down herself
I had a thorough welcome
I dare say you railway gentlemen
The parlour was a large room
But I was vexed
And here I must not forget to name
Part 2: Cousin Holman gave me the weekly county newspaper
Late in the evening
That afternoon I had to return to Eltham
"When he had done, he began to explain"
I could see my fathers countenance
"Not at all! I cant go yet, though"
"I dont know where they can be, said I."
Dont you think him handsome? asked I.
Yes! said he
Part 3: Just after this I went home for a weeks holiday.
Then came the blinding lightning
"One day, harvest time, he had been drawing"
"But you must not, he resumed"
Saturday came. But it was very late
No! he is but just landed
I stood still and wondered.
"Dont, she said."
Part 4: When I went over on Easter Day
My cousin Phillis was like a rose
"So off I went, a willing labourer"
"Dont look so sorry, Paul, she said"
I remember one thing more.
During all these days
At length we got up from our places
"Paul, you will oblige me by staying"
"I dont understand, said her father."
"But, poor fellows, they were hardly fit"
"Od rot em, said she"
