Last Line: One woe is past
Alternate Author Name(s): Alleyne, Ellen; Rossetti, Christina
Subject(s): Persistence

One woe is past. Come what come will,
Thus much is ended and made fast:
Two woes may overhang us still;
One woe is past.

As flowers when winter puffs its last
Wake in the vale, trail up the hill.
Nor wait for skies to overcast;

So meek souls rally from the chill
Of pain and fear and poisonous blast,
To lift their heads: come good, come ill.
One woe is past.
