DESPONDENCY, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: What hast thou done that makes thee despondent?
Last Line: That it never will shine again.
Subject(s): Grief; Sorrow; Sadness


What hast thou done that makes thee despondent?
Why so downhearted and sad?
Life is too short to be wasted in weeping,
Why not be cheerful and glad?

Don't stand out in the darkness despairing,
When there is plenty of light;
"Every cloud has a silver lining,"
Look on the side that's bright!

Don't think because the day's dark and dreary,
And constantly falls the rain,
And because the sun is not now shining,
That it never will shine again.
