Poem By Lizette Woodworth Reese

Keep back the one word more,
Nor give of your whole store;
For, it may be, in Art’s sole hour of need,
Lacking that word, you shall be poor indeed.

in Art’s sole hour of need, Lacking that word, you shall be poor indeed. very fine poem, short and sweet
I guess the way I translate this would be to never talk too much? Watch what you say?
