Tread Softly


Had I silver and gold, rubies and pearls,
Wrapped up in pretty paper and ribbons,
And everything in the world that was good
Of time and truth and of heaven and hope,
I would give it all to see you again:
But I have only my dreams and my words;
So I spread my dreams and words on the wind;
And pray that darkness treads softly on them

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
