Poems.
V. Sorrow
By Henry Septimus Sutton (1825–1901)
 
THE FLOWERS live by the tears that fall
  From the sad face of the skies,
And life would have no joys at all
  Were there no watery eyes.
 
Love thou thy sorrow: grief shall bring        5
  Its own excuse in after years:—
The rainbow!—see how fair a thing
  God hath built up from tears.
