Optimism
By I. Z. Josephson
 
THE ROSE is hid by prickly thorn,
Behind each night there lurks a morn,
  Amidst most threat’ning sombre skies
  The many colored rainbow lies.
No night was e’er so hopeless black        5
That it at least one star did lack;
  So pleasure lies conceal’d midst pain
  And joy is found in sorrow’s train.
