The Parting Hour (excerpt)
By Edward Pollock
THERE’S something in the “parting hour,”
  Will chill the warmest heart,
Yet kindred, comrades, lovers, friends,
  Are fated all to part;
But this I’ve seen—and many a pang        5
  Has pressed it on my mind—
The one that goes is happier
  Than those he leaves behind.
