Andrew Macphail, comp.  The Book of Sorrow.  1916.
 
XXXIII. Resignation
Dirge
By Thomas Lovell Beddoes (1803–1849)
 
NO tears, no sighings, no despair,
  No mourning weeds,
Nought that discloses
  A heart that bleeds;
But looks contented I will bear,        5
  And o’er my cheeks strew roses.
Unto the world I may not weep,
But save my sorrow all, and keep
  A secret heart, sweet soul, for thee,
  As the great earth and swelling sea.        10
