Had I the power that have the will,
The enfeebled will--a modern curse--
This book of mine should blossom still
A perfect garden-ground of verse.
White placid marble gods should keep
Good watch in every shadowy lawn;
And from clean, easy-breathing sleep
The birds should waken me at dawn.
A fairy garden;--none the less
Throughout these gracious paths of mine
All day there should be free access
For stricken hearts and lives that pine;
And by the folded lawns all day--
No idle gods for such a land--
All active Love should take its way
With active Labour hand in hand.
