How apt the world to misconstrue our deeds,
Tho rising from the inmost depths of heart,
With earnest wish some comfort to impart
To some poor soul whom solace sorely needs;
-- Colfax Burgoyne Harman. Mistrust.

You did not come,
And marching Time drew on, and wore me numb.
Yet less for loss of your dear presence there
Than that I thus found lacking in your make
-- Thomas Hardy. The Broken Appointment.
