Frank and Elsie

Frank took sick
But is on the mend
Was in hospital
Now is home again

We knew Elsie
Had a bad day
For Elsie wore no jewelry
On that pug-awful day

Like birds in the wilderness
Here we three were
Waiting for our food
Hearts going out to her

For while Frank strengthened daily
Elsie stayed firm
Even when the old furnace
Refused to burn

Then, her dog, gone it
Had to be put to sleep
And frank in the hospital
Anyone would weep

But we feel better
Knowing Elsie does too
As we light the candles
Knowing Frank will pull through
