A Persian Love Song


IF any ask, " How looks the moon ? "

stand on thy roof and say " Just so ! "

if any ask, " And how the sun ? "

show him thy glorious face aglow ;

if any ask how Jesus Christ

quickened the dead to life again, kiss him upon his brow, and me upon my lips,—and all is plain. C. FIELD.
