POETRY OF THE WEEK. IF WE KNEW. [Newspaper Article] — Stawell News and Pleasant Creek Chronicle — 11 April 1914
POETRY OF THE WEEK. IF \YK IsNF.W. Could we but draw back the curtains That surround each other's lives. See their naked heart and spirit, Know what spur the action gives; Often we should find it hotter, Purer than we judge we should* Wc should love each other better, If we only understood. Could we. judtf-c all deeds by motives, Sec the good and b;»d within. Often we should love the sinner. All the while we loathe the sin. Could we know the powers working To overthrow integrity We should judge each other's errors With more patient charity. If we knew the cares and trials, Knew the ctVort all in vain, And the bitter disappointment, Understood the loss and gain; Would the grim external roughness Seem. I wonder, just the same? Would we help where now we hinder? Would we pity where we blame? Ah I we judg-e each other harshly. Knowing not life's hidden, force; Knowing not the fount of action Is less turbid at its source. Seeing not amid the evil All the golden grains of good: Oh! we'd l...
