A Maiden's Secret

Rating: 3.1

I have written this day down in my heart
As the sweetest day in the season;
From all of the others I've set it apart---
But I will not tell you the reason,
That is my secret---I must not tell;
But the skies are soft and tender,
And never before, I know full well,
Was the earth so full of splendour.

I sing at my labour the whole day long,

And my heart is as light as a feather;

A great poem bestowing a well constructed and that most magical secret. The hidden secret of love.

My granddaughter Natosha asked me several years ago to find her a book of Ella Wheeler Wilcox's poems. Today I looked her up on the internet and found your website. I now know why she treasured the poetry of this poet. Wonderful, beautiful, soul searching poem and I am so glad I found it. I immediately sent this site to her and all my friends........so happy to have found it. I haven't heard from Natosha yet, but I bet she will be surprised that Gma remembered after all these years the Poet Ella Wheeler Wilcox...... thank you for this treasure....Gma Raney
