[Written for the Sentinel.]

THE RIVER OF TEARS

THE river of tears is a phantom stream, That is fed by the springs of woe: It flows through the valley of broken hearts, Where the weeds of sorrow grow.

Its waters are bitter with human cares, Bright hopes by its waves are tossed; But it onward flows to the sea of Love, Where the river of tears is lost.
