A Reminiscence

Written by: Anne Bronte | Biography
 | Quotes (2) |
 YES, thou art gone ! and never more
Thy sunny smile shall gladden me ;
But I may pass the old church door,
And pace the floor that covers thee.
May stand upon the cold, damp stone, And think that, frozen, lies below The lightest heart that I have known, The kindest I shall ever know.
Yet, though I cannot see thee more, 'Tis still a comfort to have seen ; And though thy transient life is o'er, 'Tis sweet to think that thou hast been ; To think a soul so near divine, Within a form so angel fair, United to a heart like thine, Has gladdened once our humble sphere.
