By Sarah Morgan Bryan Piatt
 
 
SWEET World, if you will hear me now:
  I may not own a sounding Lyre
And wear my name upon my brow
  Like some great jewel quick with fire.
 
But let me, singing, sit apart,        5
  In tender quiet with a few,
And keep my fame upon my heart,
  A little blush-rose wet with dew.
