OUT OF DISCONTENT, by GLENNYS RIVOLA
First Line: Somewhere, I know, is peace for weary eyes
Last Line: Distill our griefs to dissipate our fears.
Subject(s): Grief; Hope; Sorrow; Sadness; Optimism
Somewhere, I know, is peace for weary eyes,
Even for hearts that cry in lonely pain
That all events are empty as the rain,
And worthless is their prudence to the wise.
Somewhere is quiet in the maddened maze
Where over us a weeping sky is bent,
Where fretful haste and tired discontent
Are sad companions of our tearful days.
Do you remember how the cloudy grey
Of yesterday obscured the very hills,
And covered every twig with shining tears
Distilled from empty air? Just so, I say,
Our tears that ever come against our wills
Distill our griefs to dissipate our fears.
