OUR LADY OF CONSOLATION, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: We seek you in the garden to and fro
Last Line: And all our hearts are with you now as then.
Subject(s): Consolation


WE seek you in the garden to and fro,
Thinking how much it was your loved abode;
We gather heartsease from the seed you sowed,
And every blossom seems a gift from you.
Then we remember your hushed bed, and go
Where rosemary and roses round you strewed
Droop tenderly, by dying faintness bowed,
While dreams of girlhood smooth your white worn brow.
Ah lately lost and always unforgot,
Come oft unseen and sit with us again
And soothe us with your old benignity.
We cannot think you do not share our lot,
For here your heart was when you were not nigh,
And all our hearts are with you now as then.
