EXPERIENCE TOO LATE, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: It is the past that maketh my despair
Last Line: Loathed, yet despised, why must I think of it?
Alternate Author Name(s): L. E. L.; Maclean, Letitia


IT is the past that maketh my despair;
The dark, the sad, the irrevocable past.
Alas! why should our lot in life be made,
Before we know that life? Experience comes,
But comes too late. If I could now recall
All that I now regret, how different
Would be my choice! at best a choice of ill;
But better than my miserable past.
Loathed, yet despised, why must I think of it?
