The Unconquered Air, and Other Poems (1912)/Lines for a Fiftieth Anniversary
LINES FOR A FIFTIETH ANNIVERSARY
Golden their days have been, for love is golden—
Golden as sunshine warm with life, not cold;
Lighting earth's pathway with the blessing olden
That never groweth old.
It owns no Past; a help divine in sorrow,
A strength to overmaster each annoy,
Love holds the faithful promise of a morrow,
Immortal in its joy!
