Let Me Sing To Sorrow

26 Apr

Let me sing now to Sorrow;
not with these bitter tears,
for none have yet played
their stains upon my years.

Let me sing to thee, Sorrow;
no pain has e’er yet wrung;
‘ere with my withered hands,
no harm has yet been done.

Let me sing sweetly Sorrow,
and taste its softened breath;
this sorrowed air I breathe,
has no more life than death.

Let me sing to this Sorrow,
not by stead, but by ease;
sing this sweetly to the sky,
that love shall yet appease.

Let me then sing to Sorrow
that love has yet been fair;
and with my release of song,
let Sorrow fade upon the air.
