    From The Birmingham Age Herald, January 20, 1914.

    From Africa’s bejeweled sands,
        From Norskland’s frozen chambers
    I sought a gem as crystal soft
        As pure as tear-born ambers.

    From Valambrosa’s storied sweets,
        From El Dorado’s treasures
    I sought the diadem of life
        Quintessences of pleasures.

    From Arcady, from sunny Spain,
        From lands of golden hue
    I sought the precious things of earth
        And found them all in you.
