Garlands


O Mighty, Almighty!
I wish to install
Garlands on thee

Not ordinary garlands
But garlands bound
With my heart ‘s strings

First garland is with quality
Flowers of exalted thoughts
And the second is valuable
Flowers of precious acts

Let each thought
And each act
Be the aromatic flowers
Of the garlands.

Children I played with when I was a child,
Louise comes back with her brown hair braided,
Annie with ringlets warm and wild.
