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!
