Volume III. Sorrow and Consolation.  1904.
 
I. Disappointment in Love
Faith
Frances Anne Kemble (1809–1893)
 
BETTER trust all and be deceived,
And weep that trust and that deceiving,
Than doubt one heart that, if believed,
Had blessed one’s life with true believing.
 
O, in this mocking world too fast        5
The doubting fiend o’ertakes our youth;
Better be cheated to the last
Than lose the blessed hope of truth.
