DESPONDENCY, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: The thoughts that rain their steady glow
Last Line: And never come again.
Subject(s): Despair

THE thoughts that rain their steady glow
Like stars on life's cold sea,
Which others know, or say they know--
They never shone for me.

Thoughts light, like gleams, my spirit's sky,
But they will not remain.
They light me once, they hurry by,
And never come again.
