"I've enough for myself
But not for my brother,"—
Purge me, Father, until this
spirit changes, and I love,
and say:
"I'll share with another,"
And given e'en though, I know,
For me there will be less. . . . .
That thou wilt make me more
like Christ,
Is my request.

Mary Earle Lowry Curry,
Travelers Rest, S. C.
