THE CONGREGATION, by                    
First Line: The ghosts of night's long hours depart
Last Line: To dissipate great sorrows.
Subject(s): Grief; Sorrow; Sadness


The ghosts of night's long hours depart
In congregation dreary,
And leave my sorrow-trampled heart
Intolerably weary.

But chirpings bright in dewy wood
Foretell divine tomorrows,
And little birds are very good
To dissipate great sorrows.
