This section is from the book "Herbs And Apples", by Helen Hay Whitney. Also available from Amazon: Herbs and Apples.
I wonder if the store of joy
And love is limited,
And if because my heart is glad
Some other heart has bled.
Believing this, a balance just
Of recompense, I pray
That my beloved gained the joy
I did not have to-day.
Helen Hay Whitney, poems, literature, love
