Poetry of Kansas

Blow, Blow, Wild Winds.

Blow, blow, wild winds, ye cannot harm,
My fire is bright, my hearth is warm;
My hearth is warm, my fire is bright,
My heart is joyous, free, and light
For love itself keeps watch and ward
From every ill my life to guard;
Blow, blow, wild winds, I need not fear,
My life is safely sheltered here,
From every harm and danger near.

__Mrs. Elvira Robinson.
