Poem by Mathilde Blind
Alone—with one fair star for company, The loveliest star among the hosts of night, While the grey tide ebbs with the ebbing light— I pace along the darkening wintry sea. Now round the yule-log and the glittering tree Twinkling with festive tapers, eyes as bright Sparkle with Christmas joys and young delight, As each one gathers to his family. But I—a waif on earth where'er I roam— Uprooted with life's bleeding hopes and fears From that one heart that was my heart's sole home, Feel the old pang pierce through the severing years, And as I think upon the years to come That fair star trembles through my falling tears.
