Around the year with Ella Wheeler Wilcox.
How does Love speak?
In the proud spirit suddenly grown meek--
The haughty heart grown humble; in the tender
And unnamed light that floods the world with splendor;
In the resemblance which the fond eyes trace
In all fair things to one belove'd face;
In the shy touch of hands that thrill and tremble--
In looks and lips that can no more dissemble--
Thus doth Love speak.
Chicago, W.B. Conkey Co., c1904.
