THE CLOUDED SOUL, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: O what have you done with your heart, daughter
Last Line: And we never shall see it again.
Subject(s): Soul


O WHAT have you done with your heart, daughter,
And what have you done to your soul, my dear?
Your heart was like a lily in June,
And your soul as a crystal clear...

Oh, I've thrown my heart in a well, mother,
For the lily was sick, and needed rain:
Oh, I've wept a cloud round my soul, mother,
And we never shall see it again.
