I like to go with hands ungloved that I
May touch the things of life as I go by;
The softness of a child's bright shining hair,
The petal of a rose that's growing there,
The soft folds of a dress I like to wear.

I like to go ungloved that I may feel
The touch of everything that's true and real,
A statue with right symmetry and grace,
A tapestry, a jewel, a bit of lace,
Some shining silver in its proper place.

I like to go ungloved that I may be
Alert to give quick help and sympathy,
To draw into my arms a friend in grief,
To bandage little wounds to give relief,
To clasp a hand I love in love's belief.
