Sorrow and Sadness (4)

Did I not weep for him that was in pain!
Was not my hand still open to distress!
When did my harden'd heart the weak oppress,
Or Misery tell her plaintive tale in vain!
-- Brooke Boothby. Did I Not Weep?

Love had left me in a land of shadows,
Lonely on the ruins of delight,
And I grieved with tearless grief of widows,
Moaned as orphans homeless in the night.
-- Mathilde Blind. The Leading Of Sorrow.
