Subject(s): Forgiveness; Love; Clemency

I loved a man; he was to me
The one ideal, and like a fool
I idolized this perfect man.

And then one day I woke and found
My idol with the loving arms
And smiling eyes had feet of clay!

It could not be! The world was dark,
I crept apart, I wept alone,
And then the dear man smiled at me.

What mattered then the feet of clay
When circling arms enfolded me
And laughing eyes caressed again?

My sky was blue! The long years through
Enduring, strong, our love shall stand,
Because he knew and understood
That underneath my trailing gown
Are clay feet, too.
