TO SIDNEY STANFILL NOE

Like her who wrought at the Old fashioned Loom, And toiled at Distaff and Wheel, The grace of the Lily, the breath of its bloom, The flame of the Martyr's zeal, She has woven the Web of a beautiful Life Oh, consecrate LOVE, my WIFE, my WIFE!

NOTE TO THE SECOND EDITION

The Loom of Life was published late in 1912. It has had an unusual sale for a first volume of poetry, and there is still a steady demand for the book, which has been out of print for some months. This Second Edition is issued to meet that demand.
