ALMS, a poem

A  beggar, bent beneath the weight of years,—
     To wretchedness inured, half reconciled,—
Entreated help, and I could give but tears;
     Yet grateful looked the man on me, and smiled.
"Alms" by Florence Earle Coates. Published in Harper's Monthly Magazine (April 1904), Mine and Thine (1904) and Poems (1916) Volume II.

To Miss Susanna Stern, in Mine and Thine (1904)
