359. Love’s Mendicant
By Susan Mitchell
  
WHAT do I want of thee?
No gift of smile or tear
Nor casual company,
But in still speech to me
Only thy heart to hear.        5
 
Others contentedly
Go lonely here and there;
I cannot pass thee by,
Love’s Mendicant am I
Who meet thee everywhere.       10
 
No merchandise I make;
Thou mayst not give to me
The counterfeits they take.
I claim Him for Love’s sake,
The Hidden One in thee.       15
