Here you will find the Poem By-And-Bye of poet Ella Wheeler Wilcox
`By-and-bye, ? the maiden sighed ? `by-and-bye He will claim me for his bride, Hope is strong and time is fleet; Youth is fair, and love is sweet, Clouds will pass that fleck my sky, He will come back by-and-bye.? `By-and-bye, ? the soldier said ? `by-and-bye, After I have fought and bled, I shall go home from the wars, Crowned with glory, seamed with scars, Joy will flash from some one?s eye When she greets me by-and-bye- by-and-bye.? `By-and-bye, ? the mother cried ? `by-and-bye, Strong and sturdy at my side, Like a staff supporting me, Will my bonnie baby be. Break my rest, then, wail and cry ? Thou?lt repay me by-and-bye - by-and-bye.? Fleeting years of time have sped ? hurried by ? Still the maiden is unwed: All unknown soldier lies, Buried under alien skies; And the son, with blood-shot eye, Saw his mother starve and die. God in heaven! dost Thou on high Keep the promised `by-and-bye? - by-and-bye?
