“I Have Wandered to a Spring”
By Edna Wahlert McCourt
 
I HAVE wandered to a spring in the forest green and dim,
The sweet quiet stirs about me—
The water twinkles at me,
As I stoop to dip my cup,
    As I stoop to drink—to him.        5
 
True, I ’m only half in earnest—I touch the cool, wet brim—
He ’d laugh if he could see me—
I ’m glad he does n’t see me,
As alone with my queer gladness,
    I stoop to drink—to him.        10
