"SOME things I never would forgive!"
     So said you, dear, not knowing
That love is dead unless it live
     All charity bestowing.

O you whose heart love so could brim
In cruel need, learn this of him
     Whose all to you is owing:
The one wrong man can not forgive
     Is the wrong of his own sowing!
"Unpardoned" by Florence Earle Coates. Published in Harper's Weekly (23 March 1912), The Unconquered Air (1912) and Poems (1916) Volume II.
