WISH AND ITEM



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,
  'Twill be an item more.
