To His Love.


     “Teach me, love, to be true;
        Teach me, love, to love;
     Teach me to be pure like you.
        It will be more than enough!

     “Ah, and in days to come,
        Give me, my seraph, too,
     A son nobler than I,
        A daughter true like you:

     “A son to battle the wrong,
        To seek and strive for the right;
     A beautiful daughter of song,
        To point us on to the light!”

Francis William Lauderdale Adams
