Reciprocity - Poem by George MacDonald

Her mother, Elfie older grown,
One evening, for adieu,
Said, 'You'll not mind being left alone,
For God takes care of you!'

In child-way her heart's eye did see
The correlation's node:
'Yes,' she said, 'God takes care o' me,
An' I take care o' God.'

The child and woman were the same,
She changed not, only grew;
'Twixt God and her no shadow came:
The true is always true!

As daughter, sister, promised wife,
Her heart with love did brim:
Now, sure, it brims as full of life,
Hid fourteen years in him!
