    The Widow With the Two Mites

    Here much and little change their name
    With changing need and time;
    But more and less new judgments claim,
    Where all things are sublime.

    Sickness may be more hale than health,
    And service kingdom high;
    Yea, poverty be bounty's wealth,
    To give like God thereby.

    Bring forth your riches,--let them go,
    Nor mourn the lost control;
    For if ye hoard them, surely so
    Their rust will reach your soul.

    Cast in your coins; for God delights
    When from wide hands they fall;
    But here is one who brings two mites,
    "And yet gives more than all."

    She heard not, she, the mighty praise;
    Went home to care and need:
    Perchance the knowledge still delays,
    And yet she has the meed.
