Subject(s): Love; Prayer


GOD of the silence! must my prayer be vain
For her whose lips will laugh no more with spring?
Hast thou no boon except this peaceless pain
In whose dull presence heart nor soul can sing?

Ah! I had dreamed of good in every thing —
If there be good in death it is not plain —
God of the silence! must my prayer be vain
For her whose lips will laugh no more with spring?

There is deep meaning in the wind and rain,
I can see light where war's black cannons ring —
But when her harmless little life is slain,
It is so hard to find grace in the sting;
God of the silence! must my prayer be vain
For her whose lips will laugh no more with spring?
