    When the night-wind bewaileth the fall of the year,
And sweeps from the forest the leaves that are sere;
I wake from my slumber and list to the roar
And it saith to my spirit, “No more, never more!”
          When the Night-wind bewaileth.
 
Christopher Pearse Cranch. (1813–1892)

    Thought is deeper than all speech,
  Feeling deeper than all thought;
Souls to souls can never teach
  What unto themselves was taught.
          Stanzas.

    We are spirits clad in veils;
  Man by man was never seen;
All our deep communing fails
  To remove the shadowy screen.
          Stanzas.

    No night so wild but brings the constant sun
  With love and power untold;
No time so dark but through its woof there run
  Some blessed threads of gold.
          Oh Love supreme.

    O Light divine! we need no fuller test
  That all is ordered well;
We know enough to trust that all is best
  Where Love and Wisdom dwell.
          Oh Love supreme.
 
Joseph Edwards Carpenter. (1813– ?)

    What are the wild waves saying,
  Sister, the whole day long,
That ever amid our playing
  I hear but their low, lone song?
          What are the wild Waves saying?
