SMALL MISERIES, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Life's smallest miseries are, perhaps, its worst
Last Line: The pang that they inflict!
Alternate Author Name(s): L. E. L.; Maclean, Letitia


LIFE'S smallest miseries are, perhaps, its worst:
Great sufferings have great strength: there is a pride
In the bold energy that braves the worst,
And bears proud in the bearing; but the heart
Consumes with those small sorrows, and small shames,
Which crave, yet cannot ask for sympathy.
They blush that they exist, and yet how keen
The pang that they inflict!
