GRIEF-SONG, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: New grief, new tears
Last Line: Whence the rain is falling.
Alternate Author Name(s): Father Tabb
Subject(s): Grief; Sorrow; Sadness


NEW grief, new tears; --
Brief the reign of sorrow;
Clouds that gather with the night
Scatter on the morrow.

Old grief, old tears; --
Come and gone together;
Not a fleck upon the sky
Telling whence or whither.

Old grief, new tears; --
Deep to deep is calling:
Life is but a passing cloud
Whence the rain is falling.
