GIFTS, a poem

ONE, in her service, patient wrought,
     Striving a duteous faith to prove;
But at the last, her eyes still sought
     The face of one who gave but love

Grateful, from one she daily drew
     Strength to sustain her failing breath;
But at the last, her spirit knew
     That love is more than life—than death!
"Gifts" by Florence Earle Coates. Published in Mine and Thine (1904).
