GOLD AND STEEL; THE ANSWER, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: I have asked, and you have answered
Last Line: Steel, to meet your foes for you.
Alternate Author Name(s): Leigh, Arbor; Guggenberger, Mrs. Ignatz; Bevington, L. S.
Subject(s): Gold; Steel


I HAVE asked, and you have answered: --
Be the cunning work fulfilled,
Be the soul that's tried by fire
Tender-hearted, warrior-willed.
Steel for strength and gold for beauty,
So shall be the heart you hold;
As a sword of keenest metal
Yet may have its hilt of gold.
Fan your furnace, hotter, hotter,
Till you win the weapon true;
Golden to your touch, my dearest,
Steel, to meet your foes for you.
