LENTEN GREETING; TO A LADY, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: They must find it sweet to pray
Last Line: Will have joy as of a psalm.
Subject(s): Lent


They must find it sweet to pray
Who like you have understood
All the charm of being good,
All the worth of being gay.
By the thought that we are clay,
Is proud grief itself subdued,
May the secret of the Rood
In your sorrow be your stay!
Spring your pleasures will renew,
For the heart is merry after
That to Heaven hath been true;
And, more low for Lenten calm,
Then the music of your laughter
Will have joy as of a psalm.
