Subject(s): Despair


Streaming o'er the trammeled ways,
Etching dark paths with effulgent rays,
Shining through clouds and through the rain,
Soothing mute sorrow allaying deep pain,
Distilling rare perfume in the rose
And all the gold in the evening-glows;
It is the right transcending wrong;
It is the sweetness in the song;
It fills with echoes the summer air;
Leavens the bitter in dark despair;
Ameliorates unholy strife;
This veiled, this mystic thread of life.
