The Soul's Quest and Other Poems

by Frederick George Scott


 

RESIGNATION


 

NO selfish grief, no clamourings at our loss,
   Shall break the sacred stillness of the dim
      Dawn of eternity; we leave thee here,
Far form the winds and waves that round us toss,
      Where every pain is soothed and every fear,
5
   In the safe keeping of the arms of Him
That saw His Mother weep beside the cross.

1884.
