’Tis sweet to hear the watch-dog’s honest bark
  Bay deep-mouth’d welcome as we draw near home;
’Tis sweet to know there is an eye will mark
  Our coming, and look brighter when we come.
        Byron—Don Juan. Canto I. St. 123.

  For without hearts there is no home;—and felt
The solitude of passing his own door
  Without a welcome.
        Byron—Don Juan. Canto III. St. 52.
Come in the evening, or come in the morning,
Come when you’re looked for, or come without warning,
Kisses and welcome you’ll find here before you,
And the oftener you come here the more I’ll adore you.

Welcome, my old friend,
Welcome to a foreign fireside.

And farewell goes out sighing.
