Best Selections for Readings and Recitations, Vol. 18 (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Best Selections for Readings and Recitations, Vol. 18 Hree months had passed since she had knelt be fore' The grate of the confessional, and he, The priest, had wondered why she came no more To tell her sinless sins - the vanity Whose valid reason graced her simple dress The prayers forgotten, or the untold beads The little thoughtless words, the slight misdeeds, Which made the sum of her unrighteousness. She was the fairest maiden in his fold With her sweet mouth and musical pure voice, Her deep gray eyes, her hair's tempestuous gold, Her gracious, graceful figure's perfect poise, Her happy laugh, her wild, unconscious grace, Her gentle ways to old, or sick, or sad, The comprehending sympathy she had, Had made of her the idol of the place.
