There is beauty in the sorrow

Elizabeth_Adela_Forbes_-_The_Leaf

There is beauty in the sorrow,

That fills the silent pool with tears,

And beauty in the lark’s song on the morrow.

There is beauty in the sorrow,

That the lark and blackbird borrow—

When their heartsong quells our fears,

There is beauty in the sorrow,

That fills the silent pool with tears.

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.

      1. I post a reminder periodically that when an image is in the public domain the link to the artwork is in the image. If the picture needs a credit I post the credit too. Maybe I should just accept to make all the links obvious.
