HOPE AND TEARS, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Not in the time of pleasure
Last Line: Had the eyes no tears.
Variant Title(s): Tears;the Rainbow
Subject(s): Immortality


Not in the time of pleasure
Hope doth set her bow;
But in the sky of sorrow,
Over the vale of woe.

Through gloom and shadow look we
On beyond the years!
The soul would have no rainbow
Had the eyes no tears.
