COMPENSATION, by            
First Line: Your heart broke when you answered me
Last Line: I steal away to worship you.
Subject(s): Hearts; Love; Man-woman Relationships; Male-female Relations

YOUR heart broke when you answered me,
Your spirit wept, — for I could see
The tear-drops tremble to the lawn
Like dying notes of mass at dawn.

Now seven summers by have fled
Since first you told me love was dead,
And though my love has never died
My heart is somehow satisfied.

For where your tears of sorrow fell
The violets have made a dell,
And there, when anguish comes anew,
I steal away to worship you.
