To Esther

As I lay in the narrow hospital room,
The very air seemed full of gloom;
And things were going from bad to worse,
When there entered a sweet faced, white capped nurse.

With a few deft touches she straightened my bed.
Plumped up the pillows under my head
And had me settled for a nap.
That sweet faced nurse in her snowy cap.

You'll find her where e're there is suffering or woe.
She takes comfort and healing wheree'er she may go.
She is God's blessing to the human race.
The white capped nurse with her smiling face.

~Josephine Winifred Hammond Crawford
