I'll fold her in my arms tonight, and justice on her lips I'll wreak, I'll teach my love to know the right, and not oppress the meek

One of my favorite poems, but my computer blew up and I cannot recall the author or title. Here is all I can recall (please note my recollections may not be completely accurate):


I have been to blame till now
for I have let her do her will
...
but having borne it patiently
I will not longer pine

I'll fold her in my arms tonight
and justice on her lips I'll wreak
I'll teach my love to know the right
and not oppress the meek

Kuelchick,

I received an e-mail from Dr. Linda Hughes who identified the poem.

Here is her response:

"The poet is Charles Sydney, and the title is “Two Songs” (first published in the January 1895 Yellow Book)."

Many thanks to Dr. Hughes for her consideration and timely response.


Les
