The Deep-sea Pearl
By Edith M. Thomas
 
THE LOVE of my life came not
  As love unto others is cast;
For mine was a secret wound—
  But the wound grew a pearl, at last.
 
The divers may come and go,        5
  The tides, they arise and fall;
The pearl in its shell lies sealed,
  And the Deep Sea covers all.
