LOST HAPPINESS, by                     Poet's Biography
First Line: With happiness its precious freight
Last Line: Mine eyes tears almost blind.
Subject(s): Happiness; Joy; Delight

WITH happiness its precious freight,
Fair Fortune's barque swept by,
Afar I saw its shining state,
Its fairy majesty.

Its course the helmsman strove to stay,
My pulses throbbed apace,
My outstretched hands implored delay,
Then -- vacant was its place.

Farther, still farther o'er the tide,
Swift rushing like the wind.
And now the road I sit beside,
Mine eyes tears almost blind.
