Subject(s): Consolation


Never on this side of the grave again,
On this side of the river,
On this side of the garner of the grain,
Never, --

Ever while time flows on and on and on,
That narrow noiseless river,
Ever while corn bows heavy-headed, wan,
Ever, --

Never despairing, often fainting, rueing,
But looking back, ah never!
Faint yet pursuing, faint yet still pursuing
Ever.
