Sorrow and Sadness (5)

This, too, will die, and leave us grieving
For all the ills its arms enfold,
For faiths betrayed, for friends deceiving,
And love grown cold.
-- Edith Nesbit. At the Year's End.

Behind the mill she rises;
I watch her silver shield,
And in my heart burst open
The wounds I thought were healed.
-- Julius Karl Reinhold Sturm. The Ruined Mill.
