The Soul's Quest and Other Poems

by Frederick George Scott


 

"THE CROWN OF THORNS."


 

WITH each new day new cares will wait for thee,
   Trials and heart-aches; yet do thou not fear,
      But take them lovingly, and, weaving them
Into a crown of thorns, wear and let be
      For ever on thy head, a diadem,
5
   More royal than gold, the dearest token here
Of that sad voice that whispers, “Follow Me.”

1884.
