Head and Heart

From The Washington Herald, December 19, 1913. By John Kendrick Bangs.

When Heart says “Do,” and Head says “Don’t,”
And Bill’s inclined to say “I won’t!”
It may be wrong to follow Heart
And from the paths of Head depart,
But all the same I’ve heard much song
On roads wise Head hath branded wrong,
And sooner found the light that’s true
On byways Heart hath brought to view!
