[Written for the Journal.]


From the October 1908 issue of The Christian Science Journal

There was a time when in my daily prayer I asked for all the things I deemed most fair, And necessary to my life,—success, Riches, of course, and ease, and happiness; A host of friends, a home without alloy; A primrose path of luxury and joy, Social distinction, and enough of fame To leave behind a well-remembered name. Ambition ruled my life.
