Classic and Contemporary Poetry
SOMEDAY, by FLORA SHUFELT RIVOLA
First Line: Someday my needy fingers
Last Line: And beauty will call me friend.
Someday my needy fingers
Will touch Beauty's garment;
She will know that virtue has gone out of her,
And turning she will see
The offering my hungry eyes are making to her;
And because of my need
She will take a flower from her garlands
And give it me;
Then, these uncouth fingers will become
Bearers of the flower-message
To other hearts
And Beauty will call me Friend.
