WOMAN'S WORLD. NEVER MIND. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 16 May 1914

WOMAN'S WORLD. NEVER MIND, Sometimes, when' nothing goes just right, Anld worry reigns supreme, When heartache lllhm the eyes with Smist, • 111fi8:, And all thlings useless seem, Tplhere's just one thling can drive away The tears that seahld and blind Someoone to slip a strong arnm round And whioper, "Never mind." No one has ever told just why T'hose words such comfort bring; Nor why that whisper makles cur cares Depart on hurried wing. Yet troubles say a quick "Good-day!" We loeave them far behind When someone slips an arm around, And whispers "Never mind," But love must prompt that soet caress The love must aye be true; Or at that tender, clinging touch No heartsease comes to you, But if the man be moved by love, Sweet comfort you will find WTolln someone slips an artm around.l, And whispors "Never mind,"
