Weep Not! Sigh Not!
 
William James Linton (1812–97)
 
 
WEEP not! tears must vainly fall,
  Though they fall like rain:
Sorrow’s flood shall not recall
  Love ’s dear life again.
      Vain thy tears,        5
    Vain thy sobs;
    As vain heart-throbs
      Of lonely years
  Since thou Love hast slain.
 
Sigh not! As a passed wind        10
  Is but sought in vain,
Sighs nor groans may not unbind
  Death’s unbroken chain.
      Sighs and tears
    Nought avail,        15
    Nor cheeks grown pale
      In lonely years.
  Love comes not again.
