Waldman Come one, come all--if fanled for honesty-- And see the wondrous beauty of the Isle That stands so firmly, yet so placidly, Above the depths that seldom rile; Let Fancy lead you where-so-e'er she will, In caves, or o'er the ledges broad and steep, Nor may she fail to let you see her skill As you behold the life within the deep. March 21, 1924, WAITING By John Burroughs Serene, I fold nay hands and wait, Nor care for wind, nor tide, nor sea. I rave no more 'gainst time or fate, For what is mine shall come to me. I stay my haste, I make delays, For what avails this eager pace ? ] stand amid the eternal ways, And what is mine shall know nay face. Asleep, awake, by night or day-- The friends I seek are seeking me. No wind can turn my bark astray, Nor change the title of destiny. What matter, if I stand alone ? I hail with joy the coming 3,ears. My heart shall read where it has sown, And garner up the fruits of tears. The waters know" their own, and draw The brook that springs in ygnder height. So flows the good with equal law Unto the soul of pure delight. The stars come nightly to the sky, The tidal wave unto the sea. Nor time, nor space, nor deep, nor high, Can keep my own away from me. --From Psychology Magazine. SUMNER AVENUE ATWATER HOTEL BLDG.
