Three Days To See

should want to see the people whose kindness and companionship have made my life worth living. I do not know what it is to see into the heart of a friend through that "window of the soul," the eye. I can only "see" through my finger tips the outline of a face. I can detect laughter, sorrow, and many other obvious emotions. I know my friends from the feel of their faces.

And I should like to look into the loyal, trusting eyes of my dogs, the little Scottie and the stalwart Great Dane.
In the afternoon I should take a long walk in the woods and intoxicate my eyes on the beauties of the world of nature. And I should pray for the glory of a colorful sunset. That night, I think, I should not be able to sleep.
The next day I should arise with the dawn and see the thrilling miracle by which night is transformed into day. I should behold
