    Everything has an ending: there will be
An ending one sad day for you and me,
And ending of the days we had together,
The good companionship, all kinds of weather.
          Everything has an Ending.
 
Owen Seaman. (1861– ?)

    Whene’er I walk the public ways,
  How many poor that lack ablution
Do probe my heart with pensive gaze,
  And beg a trivial contribution! 1 
          The bitter Cry of the great Unpaid.
 
John Kendrick Bangs. (1862–1922)

    To-day, whatever may annoy,
The word for me is Joy, just simple Joy.
          The Word.
8161
    Whate’er there be of Sorrow
I’ll put off till To-morrow,
And when To-morrow comes, why then
’T will be To-day and Joy again.
          The Word.

    For me, my craft is sailing on,
Through mists to-day, clear seas anon.
Whate’er the final harbor be
’T is good to sail upon the sea!
          The Voyage.
 
Note 1.
See the anonymous travesty.
Whene’er I walk this beauteous earth,
    How many poor I see,
But as I never speaks to them,
    They never speaks to me. [back]
