NUMBER:6429

QUOTATION:Two lives that once part are as ships that divide
  When, moment on moment, there rushes between
      The one and the other a sea;—
  Ah, never can fall from the days that have been
      A gleam on the years that shall be! 1 
ATTRIBUTION:A Lament.

Ships that pass in the night. See Longfellow, page 644. [back]
