    L.M. Montgomery is the author of the Anne of Green Gables series and one of my favorite books (The Golden Road) when I was a kid. However, her poetry lacks something for me. I do like the last few lines of this poem, though:
    Others may hear your words of beauty,
    But your precious silence is mine alone;
    Here in my arms I have enrolled you,
    Away from the grasping world I fold you,
    Flesh of my flesh and bone of my bone!
