I’d like a way
To change the clouds that bring us sorrow,
And build to-day a bright to-morrow;
To banish cares that tarry long,
And have the days like the blue-bird’s song—
I’d like a way.
I’ll find a way—
I’ll set sail when the breeze is high,
And calmly drift when pleasure’s nigh;
I’ll steer a course afar from tears,
And take in joy the coming years—
I’ll find a way.
I’ve lost the way!
Out through the gloom a beam of light
Looks like a purpose looming bright!
Up with the sail! I’ll out to sea
And bring that purpose back with me,
Or go its way.
M. B. S.
