Mabel.  
Poor wandering one!
Though thou hast surely strayed,
Take heart of grace,
Thy steps retrace,
Poor wandering one!
Poor wandering one!
If such poor love as mine
Can help thee find
True peace of mind –
Why, take it, it is thine!
Mabel (Muriel Dickson) Edith (Marjorie Eyre)
Frederic (John Dean) & Kate (Masie Baxter)
1933
