Kimberly


Clear as the sparkliest waters,
Pure as the heavenliest angel,
A child of past mischief--
A child of present felicity--

Inviolate as Vestal, fire burning bright,
Auspiciously genial life, plenary of light,

Lofty she is, though viewed selfsame,
Prodigy to philanthropy, to few disdain,

Cherub within, demon without,
The fabric of Earth she will clout,
Her kindness she will no longer doubt
