SERVICE AND THRIFT
THE PIED PIPER OF HAMELIN by ROBERT BROWNING

And found myself outside the hill,
Left alone against my will,
To go now limping as before ,
And never hear of that country more!

Alas ! alas for Hamelin !
There came into many a burgher's pate
A text which says that heaven's gate
Opes to the rich at as easy rate
As the needle's eye takes a camel in!
The Mayor sent east, west, north, and south
To offer the Piper by word of mouth
Wherever it was men's lot to find him,
Silver and gold to his heart's content,
If he'd only return the way he went
And bring the children behind him.
But when they saw 'twas a lost endeavor,
And Piper and dancers were gone forever,
They made,a decree that lawyers never
Should think their records dated duly,
If, after the day of the month and year,
These words did not as well appear:
" And so long after what happened here
On the twenty-second day of July,
Thirteen hundred and seventy-six";
And the better in memory to fix
The place of the children's last retreat,
They called it the Pied Piper's Street
Where anyone playing on pipe or tabor
Was sure for the future to lose his labor.
Nor suffered they hostelry or tavern
To shock with mirth a street so solemn;
But opposite the place of the cavern
