Let pleasure woo them with her syren voice, They heed her not- they've made a nobler choice; Let others walk the shining path of fame, They dare to suffer poverty and shame, And turning from the world's enchanted bowers, To consecrate their youth and all their powers To Him they serve, and even here they find More real pleasure than they e'er resigned.- "Canadian Wild Flowers", Helen M. Johnson.
