If All the World
 
Dollie Radford (b. 1858)
 
 
IF all the world were right,
  How fair our love would grow,
At what a golden height
  Its spotless flower could blow.
 
Through what untroubled air        5
  Its fragrant boughs would spread,
On fruit how sweet and rare
  Should we be freely fed.
 
But ah, what could we tend,
  With sorrow and delight,        10
Our hearts how should we spend,
  If all the world were right?
