Give us that grand word "woman" once again,
by Ella Wheeler Wilcox

Give us that grand word "woman" once again,
and let's have done with "lady"; one's a term full of fine force,
strong, beautiful, and firm, fit for the noblest use of tongue or pen;
and one's a word for lackeys.

To those who have looked on the sea.

When life flows by like a song,
But the man worth while is the one who will smile
When everything goes dead wrong.

All in the dark we grope along,
And if we go amiss
We learn at least which path is wrong,
And there is gain in this.

By only running right;
We have to tread the mountain's base
Before we reach its height.
- Ella Wheeler Wilcox

Weep, and you weep alone;
For the sad old earth must borrow its mirth,
But has trouble enough of its own.

Whatever your work and whatever its worth,
No matter how strong or clever,
Some one will sneer if you pause to hear,
And scoff at your best endeavor.
For the target art has a broad expanse,
And wherever you chance to hit it,
Though close be your aim to the bull's-eye fame,
There are those who will never admit it.
