[from Collected Works, T.E.Brown]


AT Derby Haven in the sweet Manx land
A little girl had written on the sand
This legend:-" God is love." But, when I said:—
What What means this writing?" thus she answered :—
It's father that's at say,
And I come here to pray,
And . . . God is love." My eyes grew dim—
Blest child ! in Heaven above
Your angel sees the face of Him
Whose name is love.
