THE CONSOLATION, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: In vain! O no; on zephyr's wings
Last Line: Viola, why your stay prolong?
Subject(s): Love; Peace; Voices

In vain! O no; on zephyr's wings
Her voice salutes thine ear; she sighs
For those she left behind, but sings --
The tomb the pathway to the skies.

Her eye is in the moon-beam's glance;
The twinkling stars her crown adorn;
Before her suns and systems dance;
Around her smiles the risen morn.

She walks the sea of glass above,
She basks upon the heavenly plain,
Where all is peace and all is love,
And truth and God forever reign.

Celestial harps of sweetest strain,
Touch highest notes of rapturous song;
Their mingled echoes soft complain --
Viola, why your stay prolong?
