CONSCIENCE AND REMORSE, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Goodbye,' I said to my conscience
Last Line: "remorse sits in my place."
Subject(s): Conscience; Religion; Theology

"GOOD-BYE," I said to my conscience --
"Good-bye for aye and aye,"
And I put her hands off harshly,
And turned my face away;
And conscience smitten sorely
Returned not from that day.

But a time came when my spirit
Grew weary of its pace;
And I cried: "Come back, my conscience;
I long to see thy face."
But conscience cried: "I cannot;
Remorse sits in my place."
