Womanly Conversation. Keep a watch on your words, my sisters, For words are wonderful things They are sweet, like the bees' fresh honeyâ Like the bees they have terrible stings They can bless like the warm glad sunshine, And brighten a lonely life; They can cut, in the strife of anger, Like an open two-edged knife. Let them pass through your lips unchallenged, If their errand is true and kind- If they come to support the weary, To comfort and help the blind If a bitter revengeful spirit Prompt the words, let them te unsaid They may flash through a brain like ligh: ting, Or fall on a heart like lead. Keep them back, if they re cold and cruel, Under bar and lock and sea! The wcunds they make, my sisters, ⢠Are always slow to heal. May Christ guard your lips, and ever, From the time of your early youth, May the words that you daily utter Be the words of beautiful truth.
