EDNA DEAN PROCTOR
American poet and author
(1838 - 1923)

But no, I will not curse them: thro' the world
  A curse will follow them, like the black plague
    Tracking their footsteps ever--day and night,
      Morning and eve, summer and winter ever.
      - [Curses]

Half of the ills we hoard within our hearts,
  Are ills because we hoard them.
      - [Grief]

It is ever thus with happiness;
  It is the gay to-morrow of the mind,
    That never comes.
      - [Happiness]

She is as constant as the stars
  That never vary, and more chaste than they.
      - [Fidelity]

I think of the garden after the rain;
  And hope to my heart comes singing,
    "At morn the cherry-blooms will be white,
      And the Easter bells be ringing!"
      - Easter Bells [Easter]

The fasts are done; the Aves said;
  The moon has filled her horn
    And in the solemn night I watch
      Before the Easter morn.
        So pure, so still the starry heaven,
          So hushed the brooding air,
            I could hear the sweep of an angel's wings
              If one should earthward fare.
      - Easter Carol [Easter]
