Dorothy
By Rose Hawthorne Lathrop (Mother Alphonsa) (1851–1926)
 
[From Along the Shore. 1888.]

DEAR little Dorothy, she is no more!
I have wandered world-wide, from shore to shore,
I have seen as great beauties as ever were wed;
But none can console me for Dorothy dead.
 
Dear little Dorothy! How strange it seems        5
That her face is less real than the faces of dreams;
That the love which kept true, and the lips which so spoke,
Are more lost than my heart, which died not when it broke!
