Excerpt from Echoes From the Solitudes

To My Mother

Aye when the world seems heartless, drear, and cold,
When from its mockery my soul would hide,
And melancholy only doth abide
To wrap me in its heavy ebon fold;
I can retire, disquietude untold,
My troubles, childlike, unto her confide,
With her in waking dream sit side by side,
And shed my bitter tears as once of old.
Her memory's a sanctuary now,
Though long, long years have veiled her from my sight;
Almost I feel her hand upon my brow,
And then the darkness is transformed to light;
But when I cry, "My mother, it is thou!"
The vision's gone: I sit alone with night.
