Ella Higginson

  • 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.

    • Ella Higginson,
    • "Wearing Out Love," When the Birds Go North Again ()
  • 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.

    • Ella Higginson,
    • "The Room by the Sea," When the Birds Go North Again ()
  • 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,
    • "The Low Brown Hills," When the Birds Go North Again ()
