[Written for the Journal]


From the August 1910 issue of The Christian Science Journal

There is a torment of the days and years, Born of the heart's distress, a life's despairs, A haunting horror, quite unquenched by tears. It brings thee darkness on the breath of dawn, Bedims the roses of the day new-born, And leaves thee lifeless, hopeless, and forlorn.
