POEM OF THE DAY: Waywise

by Katharine Lee Bates (1859 – 1929).

Way-wise

The darkest wood that the north-wind stings
Hath its balsamum and its silverlings,
Its violet interspace.

The bitterest sea that the wan moon knows
Hath its hushful archipelagoes,
Its coral populace.

And the weariest burden mortal bears
Hath, woven in with its somber cares,
Some broidery of grace.
