If You Should Tire Of Loving Me

If you should tire of loving me
   Some one of our far days,
Oh, never start to hide your heart
   Or cover thought with praise.

For every word you would not say
   Be sure my heart has heard,
So go from me all silently
   Without a kiss or word;

For God must give you happiness,
   And Oh, it may befall
In listening long to Heaven-song
   I may not care at all!

A Ballad Of The Wise Men

The Christ-Child lay in Bethlehem
And the Wise Men gave Him gold,
And Mary-Mother she hearkened them
As they prayed in the cattle-fold:
'Smile then, smile, little Prince of Earth,
Smile in Thy holy sleep,
Now Thou art come, for want and dearth
There shall be plenty and light and mirth
Through lands where the poor folk weep.'
