Around the year with Ella Wheeler Wilcox.Of all the blessings which my life has known,
I value most, and most praise God for three:--
Want, Loneliness and Pain, those comrades true
Who masqueraded in the garb of foes
For many a year, and filled my heart with dread.
Yet fickle joys, like false, pretentious friends,
Have proved less worthy than this trio.
