Mary Ainge De Vere

  • Then give to the world the best you have, / And the best will come back to you.

    • Mary Ainge De Vere,
    • "Life's Mirror," The Wind-Swept Wheat: Poems ()
  • Baby — baby — far from me / Lines of care have crossed your brow, / Little children climb your knee / Fill your heart and household, now — / 'Mother' is my baby's name — / Yet, to me, she's still the same; / Still the child I rocked to rest, / As a baby on my breast!

    • Mary Ainge De Vere,
    • "Baby," The Wind-Swept Wheat: Poems ()
  • Words may be shafts that wound with piercing dart / When anger severs heart from yearning heart, / Yet gladly will he bear their pain who knows / How deeper far the hurt of silence goes.

    • Mary Ainge De Vere,
    • "A Wound," The Wind-Swept Wheat: Poems ()
