R0516-3 Poem: “The Loving Words”

::R0516 : page 3::

“LOVING words will cost but little,
Journeying up the hill of life;
But they make the weak and weary
Stronger, braver for the strife.
Do you count them only trifles?
What to earth are sun and rain?
Never was a kind word wasted,
Never one was said in vain.”


— August, 1883 —
