BY ELLA WHEELER WILCOX
Thoughts do not need the wings of words
To fly to any goal ;
Like subtle lightnings, not like birds,
They speak from soul to soul.
Hide in your heart a bitter thought,
Still it has power to blight ;
Think Love, and tho you speak it not,
It gives the world more light.
Taggarts Times [Philadelphia] 10 Jun. 1888: 2.
