A GRACE BEFORE WRITING

On Filling an Ink-well

This is a sacrament, I think!
Holding the bottle toward the light,
As blue as lupin gleams the ink:
May Truth be with me as I write!

That small dark cistern may afford
Reunion with some vanished friend,--
And with this ink I have just poured
May none but honest words be penned!

---Christopher Darlington Morley (1890-1957)


There is scarcely a single man sufficiently aware to know all the evil he does.
Duc de la Rochefoucauld (1613-80)
