SHELTER, by FLORA SHUFELT RIVOLA
First Line: I have builded a shelter from storm
Last Line: Your soul from shock.
Subject(s): Love; Soul
I have builded a shelter from storm
Made of pain's rock, ground fine,
My spirit may ease there its ache
In this house of mine.
But if you should come knocking at night
When the wild winds beat,
Would I could share with your soul
My soul's retreat.
But ever and ever each one
Must carry his mortar and rock,
This is love's crossI may not shield
Your soul from shock.
