Georgiana Goddard King

  • Now comes the May time, the wild hawks' play-time, / With long blithe daytime and warm night showers ...

  • Love, first begotten of all created things ...

  • ... every smart / Is eased in telling.

  • We who borrow / Never pay, / For to-morrow / Is not to-day.

  • To want is more than to attain.

  • We have to learn, being all untaught, / The miracles by silence wrought, / And by the solitude that lies / Inside the bosom.

  • The heart / That laughs must ache.

Georgiana Goddard King, U.S. poet

(1871 - 1939)
