COMPENSATION, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: How many an acorn falls to die
Last Line: An echo in my soul!
Alternate Author Name(s): Father Tabb
Subject(s): Love

HOW many an acorn falls to die
For one that makes a tree!
How many a heart must pass me by
For one that cleaves to me!

How many a suppliant wave of sound
Must still unheeded roll,
For one low utterance that found
An echo in my soul!
