TWO kinds there are: the one theatric, bold --
A murder, maybe, horrible to see,
Lives lost by fire or flood, and bodies cold
That speak some tale of awful agony;

The other, mumming by a milder name:
A human soul that as the days go by
Sinks deeper down into some pit of shame,
Yet knows the stars shine silvery and high.
