ALONZO BARTLETT BRAGDON
American jurist, writer and scholar
(1847 - 1918)

Alas, how scant the sheaves for all the trouble,
  The toil, the pain and the resolve sublime--
    A few full ears; the rest but weeds and stubble,
      And withered wild-flowers plucked before their time.
      - The Old Campus [Life]

Ah, poet-dreamer, within those walls
  What triumphs shall be yours!
    For all are happy and rich and great
      In that City of By-and-by.
      - Two Landscapes [Poets]

From fibers of pain and hope and trouble
  And toil and happiness,--one by one,--
    Twisted together, or single or double,
      The varying thread of our life is spun.
        Hope shall cheer though the chain be galling;
          Light shall come though the gloom be falling;
            Faith will list for the Master calling
              Our hearts to his rest,--when the day is done.
      - When the Day is done [Day]
