Two Loves

Two Loves

One said; “Lo, I would walk hand-clasped with thee
Adown the ways of joy and sunlit slopes
Of earthly song in happiest vagrancy
To pluck the blossom of a thousand hopes.
Let us together drain the wide world’s cup
With gladness brimm├ęd up!”

And one said, “I would pray to go with thee
When sorrow claims thee; I would fence thy heart
With mine against all anguish; I would be
The comforter and healer of thy smart;
And I would count it all the wide world’s gain
To spare or share thy pain!”



Poem Two Loves - Lucy Maud Montgomery
