Sorrow and Sadness (2)

Yes, still with fond regret I turn
Your fading visions to renew;
And still your simple pleasures mourn,
So pure, but ah! so brief, and few.
-- Janetta Philipps. The Hapless Wretch.

She was cruel in her fear;
Through the bars, one dreary day,
I looked out to see her there,
And she turned her face away!
-- Emily Bronë. Hope.
