DISAPPOINTED, by                 Poet's Biography
First Line: A gleaming pearl lay on the strand
Last Line: No ice could colder prove.
Subject(s): Disappointment

A GLEAMING pearl lay on the strand,
It seemed a beauteous one;
Yet when I grasped it in my hand,
'T was but a pebble-stone.

I plucked a crimson rose so fair,
Fragrant as a spring morn:
When on my breast I sought to wear
The flow'r, 't was but a thorn.

A heart, too, once was sent to me, --
I thought it glowed with love;
But, bound to mine eternally,
No ice could colder prove.
