AFTER SOUFRIERE, by                 Poet's Biography
First Line: It is not grief or pain
Last Line: But the wide waste come again.
Alternate Author Name(s): Field, Michael (with Edith Emma Cooper)

IT is not grief or pain;
But like the even dropping of the rain
That thou art gone.
It is not like a grave
To weep upon;
But like the rise and falling of a wave,
When the vessel's gone.

It is like the sudden void,
When the city is destroyed,
Where the sun shone:
There is neither grief nor pain,
But the wide waste come again.
