WISDOM (1), by                 Poet's Biography
First Line: It was a night of early spring
Last Line: It is the things we have that go.
Alternate Author Name(s): Filsinger, Ernest B., Mrs.
Subject(s): Wisdom

It-was a night of early spring,
The winter-sleep was scarcely broken;
Around us shadows and the wind
Listened for what was never spoken.

Though half a score of years are gone,
Spring comes as sharply now as then --
But if we had it all to do
It would be done the same again.

It was a spring that never came,
But we have lived enough to know
What we have never had, remains;
It is the things we have that go.
