Sympathies dry


Poverty is not mother of grief.
The mother is disparity.
Prosperity cannot drive out grief.
Prosperity eliminates poverty.
With poverty elopes sympathy.
Suicides grow not from poverty
But from want of sympathy.

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,

Of peace on earth, good will to men.
