THE LAST PITY, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Now I have seen your face
Last Line: With pity which is all your own
Subject(s): Pity


Now I have seen your face,
My tears are all for you.
Where are the lonely grace,
The pride, the lovely ways I knew?

The flower that blossomed fair
When winds and clouds arrayed
The shadows of the air,
Plucked, though with jealous care, must fade.

And in your wintry eyes,
With re-awakenings moved
A moment, I surprise
Nostalgia of the skies they loved.

Old sorrows I have borne
In patience for your sake,
Not without help of scorn:
From dreams, now twice forlorn, I wake.

I hear the old sorrows call,
Now, from your heart alone;
And scorn's relief recall
With pity which is all your own
