CRY WOE, WOE, AND LET THE GOOD PREVAIL, FR. AGAMEMNON, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: O well for him who lives at ease
Last Line: Builds ladders to be nearer god.


O well for him who lives at ease
With garnered gold in wide domain,
Nor heeds the splashing of the rain,
The crashing down of forest trees.

O well for him who ne'er hath known
The travail of the hungry years,
A father grey with grief and tears,
A mother weeping all alone.

But well for him whose feet have trod
The weary road of earthly strife
Yet from the sorrows of his life
Builds ladders to be nearer God.
