Grief-Song - Poem by John Bannister Tabb

New grief, new tears;-
Brief the reign of sorrow;
Clouds that gather with the night
Scatter on the morrow.


Old grief, old tears;-
Come and gone together;
Not a fleck upon the sky
Telling whence or whither.


Old grief, new tears;-
Deep to deep is calling:
Life is but a passing cloud
Whence the rain is falling.
