THE SONG MAKER, by                 Poet's Biography
First Line: I made a hundred little songs
Last Line: Am silent now.
Alternate Author Name(s): Filsinger, Ernest B., Mrs.
Subject(s): Singing & Singers

I made a hundred little songs
That told the joy and pain of love,
And sang them blithely, tho' I knew
No whit thereof.

I was a weaver deaf and blind;
A miracle was wrought for me,
But I have lost my skill to weave
Since I can see.

For while I sang -- ah swift and strange!
Love passed and touched me on the brow,
And I who made so many songs
Am silent now.
