Edna Jacques Poems


It doesn't matter much, I know,
In all this world of grief and woe,
That one small girl of half-past four
Is never watching any more,


She does not know that rooms are bleak and bare,
That poverty dwells with us all the while;
It is enough for her that I am there
To praise her little deeds, to sing and smile.

I remember her well, as when a child I used to read her poems in the Moose Jaw paper, and then years later I had a chance to chat with her in her little house south of Toronto. Had gone there with a friend. I still like her style of poems better than the modern ones.

Beautiful poems that evoke delight and longing and passion. What is the poem....Go out go out I beg of you, And taste the beauty of the wild, Behold the miracle of the earth With all the wonder of a child..
