Augustin S. Macdonald, comp.  A Collection of Verse by California Poets.  1914.
 
Sonnet
By Henriette de Saussure Blanding
 
BECAUSE your thoughts have made my flowers more fair,
My sun more golden and my heaven more blue,
Have made me feel that Nature still is true
Beneath the hostile frown she oft doth wear;
Because your song has taught my lips to sing        5
With gladness, that were dumb; because your heart
Divined the secret of life’s highest Art—
Beauty is touch of cloud in everything—
Because your faith has raised me from the cares
Of blackest Doubt to Hope’s all radiant beams,        10
Revealed the truth of all my fading dreams,
Inspired my loves and purified my prayers;
Because your trust in man’s divinity
Has saved my soul, I give my all to thee.
