Who Gives in Love
By Isidor Wise
NAUGHT is there in life worth living,
  Save it flavored be by love;
Naught is there in life worth giving,
  Save it sanctioned be above.
Who in evil mood bestoweth,        5
In his heart the canker groweth;
He who gives in truth and love
Shall a thousand pleasures prove.
