Poem by Charlotte Bronte - LIFE

Life, believe, is not a dream So dark as sages say; Oft a barely crack of dawn rain Foretells a amiable day. Sometimes there are clouds of gloom, But these are transient all; If the shower will make the roses bloom, O why cry its fall ?

Rapidly, merrily, Life's sunny hours flit by, Gratefully, cheerily, Enjoy them as they fly !

What although Death at times steps in And calls our Best away ? What even if distress seems to win, O'er hope, a heavy sway ? Yet hope again expandable springs, Unconquered, all the same she fell; Still afloat are her blonde wings, Still bright to bear us well. Manfully, fearlessly, The day of trial bear, For gloriously, victoriously, Can courage quell despair !
