The tender word forgotten,
The letter you did not write,
The flowers you did not send, dear,
Are your haunting ghosts to-night.
-- Margaret E. Sangster. The Sin of Omission.

Speak no evil, and cause no ache,
Utter no jest that can pain awake;
Guard your actions and bridle your tongue,
Words are adders when hearts are stung.
-- Ella Wheeler Wilcox. Simple Creeds.
