Forever

From the Evening Star, September 7, 1913. By S. E. Kiser.

She treated him as if he had
    Been some unworthy thing;
It seemed, indeed, to make her glad
    To see him worrying.

She seemed to study how to make
    His moments doubly sad;
She seemed to want his heart to break,
    His sorrow made her glad.

At last, believing her to be
    Unworthy and unkind,
He ceased his pleading, sensibly
    Declining to be blind.

The moment that he turned away
    And seemed to cease to care
She humbly called to him to stay,
    And wilted in despair.

He tenderly forgave her when
    Her tears began to flow;
For so it is with maids and men—
    It always will be so.
