“Who knows the thoughts of a child?”
“Oh, was it I or was it you, / That broke the subtle chain that ran / Between us two, between us two, — / Oh, was it I or was it you?”
“When rough and wild the March winds blow, / Beneath the ice we look, and lo! / We see the brooks begin to flow.”
“Always to-morrow and never to day, / So the winter wears till the bloom of May: / 'Yet what is a month more or less?' you say.”
Nora Perry, U.S. poet, journalist, writer
(1831 - 1896)
