Poems, Volume II by Florence Earle Coates
A Narrow Window

A NARROW WINDOW

A  NARROW window may let in the light,
A tiny star dispel the gloom of night,
A little deed a mighty wrong set right.


A rose, abloom, may make a desert fair,
A single cloud may darken all the air,
A spark may kindle ruin and despair.


A smile, and there may be an end to strife;
A look of love, and Hate may sheathe the knife
A word—ah, it may be a word of life!
