First Line: Roses after rain
Last Line: In the heart's twilight!
Alternate Author Name(s): Tremaine, John
Subject(s): Consolation

Roses after rain,
Pleasure after pain,
Happiness will soothe the sigh,
Smiles await the tear-dimmed eye—
Bloom will follow blight,
Daylight trails the night.
Life is sweeter
Love is deeper
In the heart's twilight!
