"Where Shall My Heart Go?" by Mabel Forrest

| No TrackBacks
Where shall my heart go--east or west? 
   Long gray river or level plain? 
Where shall my warm heart find its nest, 
   Calling you to my arms again,
After the worst to find the best 
   Of joy which cometh after pain? 

Where shall my heart go? Granite heights 
   Block the west; but love knows the way; 
Lone camp fires in the starless nights, 
   Lone bush tracks in the sultry day, 
Still swamp lands--where the morning's lights 
   Turn to golden the dawn's cold gray. 

There shall my heart go yearning still, 
   Never resting, but seeking yet 
Barren desert, or wooded hill, 
   Down to where salt waves surge and fret -- 
Just to show you I love you still, 
   Just to tell you I can't forget!
