WISH AND ITEM



Written to the Editor of the Item, Lynn, Mass.

       I hope the heart that's hungry
         For things above the floor,
       Will find within its portals
         An item rich in store;

       That melancholy mortals
         Will count their mercies o'er,
       And learn that Truth and wisdom
         Have many items more;

       That when a wrong is done us,
         It stirs no thought of strife;
       And Love becomes the substance,
         As item, of our life;

       That every ragged urchin,
         With bare feet soiled or sore,
       Share God's most tender mercies, -
         Find items at our door.

       Then if we've done to others
         Some good ne'er told before,
       When angels shall repeat it,
         'T will be an item more.
