DESPAIR AND FEAR, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: The difference between despair / and fear - is like the one
Last Line: That knows it cannot see.
Subject(s): Despair; Fear

THE difference between despair
And fear, is like the one
Between the instant of a wreck,
And when the wreck has been.

The mind is smooth, -- no motion --
Contented as the eye
Upon the forehead of a Bust,
That knows it cannot see.
