Ghosts of Pain (5)

Can the soul that loved mine long ago
Be hence and away, and I not know?
Oh, then God's judgment is on me sore,
For I have lost her for evermore...
-- Edith Nesbit. The Ghost Bereft.

Along the shore, along the shore
I hear the waves resounding,
But thou wilt cross them nevermore
For all my wild heart's bounding...
-- Dinah Maria Mulock Craik. Along The Shore.
