An Optimist

From The Birmingham Age Herald, June 23, 1913.
 By Samuel Minturn Peck.

 “I cannot answer yes,” quoth she,
     As I knelt down to sue;
 “One heart is not enough, you see,
     For all who come to woo.”
 “Alas!” I cried, “my fate is rough!”
     Then flashed a thought profound:
 “Still - though you have not hearts enough -
     I’ve arms to go around!”
