THIS LITTLE MOMENT, by            
First Line: And though black shadows press about my head
Last Line: Must lose itself in myriad bright tomorrows.


And though black shadows press about my head
And the unstarred night wrap suffocating sleeves
Around my throat; and though my dreams be dead
And all my glittering hopes prove sneaking thieves
That steal my strength away ... this hour shall pass;
This day that drains my faith shall live to be
Dimly recalled as through a clouded glass,
While the wings of brighter hopes blur wildly free.

For there are rhythms here in life as well
As in the poet's line, and the tides come in
And the tides go out, and even as they fell
The bold suns rise, and from night the days begin.
This little moment when I nurse my sorrows
Must lose itself in myriad bright tomorrows.
