Our Sorrow
By Alva N. Turner
YOUR sorrow died,
And you buried it;
And then you dried
Your tears
As you went your way        5
Forgetting it:
While mine lives through the years.
Men understood your sorrow
Because it died,
And pitied your tears,        10
Which you have dried;
But they leer at my sorrow
And sneer,
Because it lives through the years.
