    Along the flowery hedge I stray,
      To meet mine ain dear somebody.

  Had kissed me, and the tenderness of rain--
    Now you have come, how can I care for kisses
      Like theirs again?

  Let my heart have its say and my mind stand idly by,
    For my mind is proud and strong enough to be silent,
      It is my heart that makes my songs, not I.
      - Sara Teasdale (Mrs. E.B. Filsinger),
        What Do I Care?
