Foreword:

IF it were not for the hillocks

  You'd think little of the hills;

The rivers would seem tiny

  If it were not for the rills.

If you never saw the brushwood

  You would under-rate the trees;

And so you see the purpose

  Of such little rhymes as these.

Preface:

This volume contains nearly the whole of the three small collections named "Songs of Action", "Songs of the Road", and "The Guards came through". To these are added a number of new pieces: "The Farewell", "Now then, Smith!", "To my Lady", "A Reminiscence of Cricket", "The Bugles of Canada", "Christmas in Trouble", "To Carlo", "To Ronald Ross", "Little Billy", "Take Heart", "Retrospect", and "Comrades". There is also added a short poetical one-act play, "The Journey".
