A WOMAN'S HAND, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Never, I know, complaining word
Last Line: Upon your heart's adversity.
Subject(s): Women

NEVER, I know, complaining word
Will soil your lips of stedfastness,
But what so bravely is unheard,
Your hand in silence will confess;

Your hand, poor witness of your pain,
Its fragile motion telling me
Of weary nights when it has lain
Upon your heart's adversity.
