From The Birmingham Age Herald, January 20, 1914.

From Africa’s bejeweled sands,
    From Norskland’s frozen chambers
I sought a gem as crystal soft
    As pure as tear-born ambers.

From Valambrosa’s storied sweets,
    From El Dorado’s treasures
I sought the diadem of life
    Quintessences of pleasures.

From Arcady, from sunny Spain,
    From lands of golden hue
I sought the precious things of earth
    And found them all in you.
