Subject(s): Love - Loss Of


The way of all transgressors is not hard,
As mine is. Other men have lightly sinned,
And joyously accepted their reward;
And memory, whistling as an idle wind,
Sang nothing in their ears to follow them
Down the despairing hollows of their nights;
Yet something burns my heart out like a flame
If I but think on those foregone delights.
Why should I suffer, since I did the wrong?
God knows that I repent not. Why should I
Suffer? Take courage, feeble heart, be strong,
Poor heart that whimpers like a cur. O why,
In futile and dishonourable pain,
Moan on the grave of love that you have slain?
