1431. One Way of Trusting
 
By Hannah Parker Kimball
 
 
NOT trust you, dear? Nay, ’t is not true.
  As sailors trust the shifting sea
From day to day, so I trust you.
  They know how smooth the sea can be;
And well they know its treachery        5
  When tempests blow; yet forth they thrust
Their ships, as in security.
  They trust it, dear, because they must.
