Johanna talks of Lemuel
And I of spinning sing
But Emily sits all alone
Nor speaks of anything.

The thoughtless words Johanna drops
Are dull and little worth,
They sink to rest with those I speak,
As pebbles fall to earth.

The silent words of Emily,
I wonder where they go --
The secret things she does not say,
When she is sitting so.
