EMMA CATHERINE EMBURY
American author
(1828 - 1863)

Sorrow treads heavily, and leaves behind
  A deep impression, e'en when she departs:
    While joy trips by with steps light as the wind,
      And scarcely leaves a trace upon our hearts
        Of her faint foot-falls: only this is sure,
          In this world nought, save misery, can endure.
      - [Sorrow]

The charm of eloquence--the skill
  To wake each secret string,
    And from the bosom's chords at will
      Life's mournful music bring;
        The o'ermast'ring strength of mind, which sways
          The haughty and the free,
            Whose might earth's mightiest ones obey
              This charm was given to thee.
      - [Eloquence]

The gathered rose and the stolen heart can charm but for a day.
      - [Roses]

There dwelleth in the sinlessness of youth a sweet rebuke that vice may not endure.
      - [Purity]

When the cold breath of sorrow is sweeping
  O'er the chords of the youthful heart,
    And the earnest eye, dimm'd with strange weeping,
      Sees the visions of fancy depart;
        When the bloom of young feeling is dying,
          And the heart throbs with passion's fierce strife,
            When our sad days are wasted in sighing,
              Who then can find sweetness in life?
      - [Sorrow]

When the glad sun, exulting in his might, comes from the dusky-curtained tents of night.
      - [Morning]

Youth, health, and hope may fade, but there is left
  A soul that trusts in Heaven, though thus of all bereft.
      - [Trust]
