WISTFULNESS, by            
First Line: I could not see the land
Last Line: Out in the night.
Subject(s): Despair

I could not see the land
The mist lay all too deep:
O, you who understand
Child, do not weep.

I did not hear the bell
That sounded from the shore
But in my soul a knell
Sounding ever more.

I shall not come to you
Back from the sad world's pain,
Or see the dreaming blue
Of your eyes again.

You sing your evening song --
There in the candle light;
O -- but the hours lay long
Out in the night.
