IT COSTS SO LITTLE.

It was only a sunny smile. And little it cost in the giving ; But it scattered the night, lake the morning light, Ami made the day worth living. Through life’s dull warp a woof it wove In shining colours of hope and love ; And the angeks smiled as they watched above; Yet it cost little in the giving. It was only a kindly word. A word that was lightly spoken ; Yet not in vain. For it stilled the pain Of a heart that was nearly broken. It strengthened a faith beset by fears. And groping blindly through mists of tears For light to brighten the coming years. Although it was lightly spoken. It was only a helping hand. And it seemed of little availing ; But its clasp was warm. And it saved from harm A brother whose strength was failing. Its touch was tender as angel wings. But rolled the stone from the hidden springs l . And pointed the way to higher things. Though it seemed of little availing. —Selected.
