DESPAIR, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: The curtains of twilight are drawn in the west
Last Line: Good-bye to love's ship that ne'er sailed.
Alternate Author Name(s): Tremaine, John
Subject(s): Despair


The curtains of twilight are drawn in the west
And vespers are sweet on the air,
While I, through my leafless, ungarlanded way
But pause at the gates of despair.

Good-bye to the hopes that were never fulfilled,
Good-bye to the fond dreams that failed,
Good-bye to my dead that has never been born,
Good-bye to love's ship that ne'er sailed.
