THUS as I yearned for love,
At length the clouds parted,
And I knew the old old vision:
Him with the sorrowful eyes (pain, unrelenting pain)
With the distant piercing unapproachable eyes, I knew,—
The face from the murky clouds disclosed, and with drawn again.
O night, fold upon fold, impenetrable, with silent tears in the darkness
falling—mute night, remover of all evidence!
O dawn, with early rising almost before it is light, and preparations for a
long journey!
O day, with children playing by the roadside, and greetings exchanged, and
cheery demeanor!


And somewhere, unseen, over all, the same unapproachable eyes looking as
ever down.
