Alice E. Allen

  • The things of every day are all so sweet — / ... / Oh, life — the whole of life — is far too fleet. / The things of every day are all so sweet. / The common things of life are all so dear — / ... Is Heaven not after all the Now and Here? / The common things of life are all so dear.

    • Alice E. Allen,
    • "Life's Common Things," in The Homiletic Review ()
