I GREET THEE, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Oh, kindred soul, I give thee greeting
Last Line: God bless thee, my own sunlight fair!
Subject(s): Soul


OH, kindred soul, I give thee greeting,
E'en as we greet the sunshine bright,
Which, after winter's night, uncloses
The springtide days of warmth and light!

As 'neath Spring's kisses, warm and tender,
The flowers their bright faces show,
So thou within my heart dost conjure
The first green blade of hope to grow.

And from that heart, to new life kindled,
Doth softly rise an earnest prayer,
That God this sunbeam ever guarding
Will its light always to me spare.

Whatever tempests may assail me,
My trusting heart will ne'er despair:
Oh, kindred soul, I give thee greeting!
God bless thee, my own sunlight fair!
