“Forgive you? — Oh, of course, dear, / A dozen times a week! / We women were created / Forgiveness but to speak. / ... / And one day you'll be grieving, / And chiding me, no doubt, / Because so much forgiving / Has worn a great love out.”
“O room so full of sunlight / Of sound and scent of sea! / No other room in all the world / Could be so dear to me.”
“I did not love them overmuch / Till I had turned away, / But now they glimmer thro' my dreams, / They haunt the summer day — / The low brown hills, the bare brown hills / Of San Francisco Bay.”
Ella Higginson, U.S. poet, writer
(1861 - 1940)
Full name: Ella Rhoads Higginson.
