AFFINITES: 2, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Take me to thy heart, and let me
Last Line: And thy blessing ere I go.
Alternate Author Name(s): Lake, Claude
Subject(s): Love


TAKE me to thy heart, and let me
Rest my head a little while;
Rest my heart from griefs that fret me
In the mercy of thy smile.

In a twilight pause of feeling,
Time to say a moment's grace,
Put thy hands, whose touch is healing,
Put them gently on my face.

Found too late in Life's wild welter,
All I ask, for weal and woe,
Friend, a moment's friendly shelter,
And thy blessing ere I go.
