Told Wltb a Kiss.
I know not how It happened ,
Or what I had to say
But olcudu hid all the sunshine
On my darling's face that day ,
I longed to a > k forgiveness
For bitter words of mine ,
But pride was fierce stubborn.
And so I g T no sign ,
I raw the swift tears falling
Upon my darling's cheek ,
And then the grievedUp quivered
Wltb wordishe did not speak ,
Then something whispered to mo :
"Whst better way thanthU ?
Go tell her that you love her.
And tell it with ft kiss ! "
"Dear hcartl" I cried , "I love you !
Forgive the words I spoke. "
Across her face the sunshine
Through summer shower * broke.
"I'm most to blame , " she whispered ,
"For what h "
s gone amiss.
And the troubloi of the morning
Were ended in a kiss.
Give honor nnd love for evermore
To this great man gone to rest :
Peace on tha dim Plutonian shore ,
Host in tbo land of the blest.
I reckon him greater than any man
That ever drew sword In war ;
I reckon him nobler than king or khan ,
Braver and better by far ,
Ard wiiest he In this whole wide land
Ol hardloR till btnt and gray ;
For all yu can hold In your cold dead
Is what you have given away.
So. whether to wander the stars or to rest
Forever huihed and dumb ,
He gave with a test and gave his best ,
And d serves the best to come.
