Subject(s): Consolation; Love - Loss Of


So Lucy found at last the world was blind,
Grieved for the bad, forgetful of the good,
Until there came a friend who understood,
Talked quietly and listened and was kind.
She washed the bitterness from Lucy's mind
Leaving instead sublimity of mood
With rich companionship in solitude
Of a peaceful heart unwrung and unconfined.

People said, "She loved a soldier lad.
Killed, poor fellow, in some little fight,
The only lover that she ever had.
Aren't the hills lovely here and clear to-night?"
And Lucy kept a boarding school for girls,
A quaint old lady, with old-fashioned curls.
