    Bid the future pay the past
    With joy for anguish, smiles for tears?

    This verse below is part of Farewell by Anne Bronte in a poetry book that I own. However it seems to be part of another Anne Bronte poem - Severed and Gone. Can anyone explain this?
    Life seems more sweet that thou didst live,
    And men more true that thou wert one:
    Nothing is lost that thou didst give,
    Nothing destroyed that thou hast done.
