What So Wild As Words Are . . .
by Wilhelmina Stitch

There's naught so wild as words that rise on temper's hot, uneven breath;
And, taking love by swift surprise, strike deep, like spears intent on death.
.There's naught as wild as words that flow from lips that watch not what they say.
Oh, foolish Two, you surely know that love is scarce an inch away!

Those wild, wild, words, they cannot break the precious link that binds you fast.
Be silent now for love's sweet sake, for all the beauty of the past.
Be silent, though you suffer grief fearing that love has really fled.
When all is well - ah! what relief you breathed no word you wish unsaid.

There's naught so wild as words that spring from jealousy or injured pride,
From some unreined imaging - then may calm wisdom be the guide
And place up our lips a seal until the bitter mood departs
And joy's gay laughter comes to heal, and peace brings balm to two sore hearts.
