Deep in My Blood Beyond All Words
Something Very Precious

I have something very precious, friend,
Something whose worth can never fluctuate,
Something that ever will stand me in good stead
In all the many crises of my life,
And even in my daily humdrum ways;
Something that strengthens, that makes light the task,
Releases all my hidden energies,
And fills my mind with boundless thoughts of beauty;
Something inspiring me to better work,
Since you, perchance, will judge the worth of it
And say perhaps, "Yes, this is rather good."
So you can see the value of my treasure;
I mean, my dear, the love you give to me.
