OFT have I sought in vain a cause to trace...
#1
Caroline Woolmer Leakey
1827 - 1881 Großbritannien / Australien


OFT have I sought in vain a cause to trace,
That to mine anxious heart would kind reveal,
How it can be that I should saddest feel,
When gazing on fair Nature's lovely face,
Bright with the sunny smile of innocence;
How it can be that yon rich sloping field,
Pleasing mine eye, should to my spirit yield
Fresh dreams of sadness - a still deeper sense
Of emptiness; and how the flowers' bright glow,
The joyous song of birds, the murmuring bee,
The laugh of childhood ringing merrily,
Should all bring heaviness. But now I know, -
For Death doth ever linger on the stair
Of earth's best beauties and of things most fair.
