Always and Always
By Ruth Harwood
From “Working-hour Songs”

ALWAYS and always
I go out from myself
In the silver morning,
Out to greet some new friend,
With my arms laden with friendship gifts        5
And a hundred little songs of gladness on my lips.
Always and always
I return to myself
In the purple twilight—
Back to the comforting sureness of myself,        10
To fill my empty arms again with gifts,
To ease the little hurt my heart has brought.
