1.
At The Sick Children's Hospital
A little crippled figure, two big pathetic eyes,
A face that looked unchildish, so wan it was and wise;
I watched her as the homesick tears came chasing down each cheek.
'I had to come,' she whispered low, 'I was so tired and weak.

A Good Woman
Her eyes are the windows of a soul
Where only the white thoughts spring,
And they look, as the eyes of the angels look,

For garden bloom and orchard store,
The crimson vine upon the wall,
The green and gold of maples tall,
...
9.
Discontent
My soul spoke low to Discontent:

Now, ere the strength of me is spent,
I would be quit of thee.
...
10.
Christy And The Pipers
