Watching how my fate would tend,
Even as selfish-hearted men.

She was cruel in her fear;
Through the bars, one dreary day,
I looked out to see her there,
And she turned her face away!

Like a false guard, false watch keeping,

COMMENTS OF THE POEM

Miss Emily Bronte has once again touched my heart with her self-forgetting use of spellbinding english. Hope which sometimes seems not present has indeed been given an excuse for. Hope's charactor so complex by itself has been potrayed by Miss Bronte in simplicity and wit.

Emily's lyricism is unique: simplistically fascinating. Hope dissected through vivid, agonizing and breathtaking pictures. So young yet so pensive!

She would sing while I was weeping; If I listened, she would cease. Can closely associate with these lines... indeed hope is a timid friend. She whispers light when in doom, balms with sunshine and wishful dreams. Beautiful poem! !

She would sing while I was weeping; If I listened, she would cease. Stretched her wings, and soared to heaven, Went, and ne'er returned again!

She would sing while I was weeping; If I listened, she would cease. Can closely associate with these lines. Indeed hope is a jolly pal for an aching soul. she would balm with kindness, enlightening our souls.
