Read an Excerpt


For here in knotted cord and vein I trace the varying chart of years; I know the troubled heart, the strain, The weight of Atlas — and the tears. Again I see the patient brow That palm erewhile was wont to press; And now 'tis furrowed deep, and now Made smooth with hope and tenderness.
