Poem by Lucy Maud Montgomery


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 worlds cup 
With gladness brimmed 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 worlds gain 
To spare or share thy pain!
