All thoughts, all passions, all delights,
Whatever stirs this mortal frame,
All are but ministers of Love,
And feed its sacred flame.

OUT OF THE HEART.

Out of the heart it came, the impulse strong,
With patient labor and with loving art
This wreath to gather, every flower a song

Out of the heart.

And some have morning's dew on every part; And some have drunk the sunshine all day long; And some are paler for love's secret smart.

Dear, happy children, who can do no wrong,
A few have brought; a few like tear-drops start,
For those whose treasure has been missing long,
Out of the heart.

J. W. C.
