Subject(s): Life


EACH life has one grand day: the clouds may lie
Along the hills, and storm-winds fiercely blow --
The great red sun shine like a thing of woe,
And death's sad skeleton stalk grimly by.
Yet none of these, no matter how they try,
Can shroud the perfect triumph we shall know,
Or dim the glory that some star will show
Set far away in depths of purple sky.

Sweet love may bring to us this day supreme,
Or it may thrill our souls through art or song,
Or meet us where red battle-surges foam;
Hope's stranded wrecks the barren coasts may gleam,
And weeks and months rush by, a sombre throng,
But sometimes, somewhere, it will surely come.
