I measure every grief I meet

With analytic eyes;

I wonder if it weighs like mine,

Or has an easier size.



I wonder if they bore it long,

Or did it just begin?

I could not tell the date of mine,

It feels so old a pain.



I wonder if it hurts to live,

And if they have to try,

And whether, could they choose between,

They would not rather die.



I wonder if when years have piled--

Some thousands--on the cause

Of early hurt, if such a lapse

Could give them any pause;



Or would they go on aching still

Through centuries above,

Enlightened to a larger pain

By contrast with the love.



The grieved are many, I am told;

The reason deeper lies,--

Death is but one and comes but once

And only nails the eyes.



There's grief of want, and grief of cold,--

A sort they call 'despair,'

There's banishment from native eyes,

In sight of native air.



And though I may not guess the kind

Correctly yet to me

A piercing comfort it affords

In passing Calvary,



To note the fashions of the cross

Of those that stand alone

Still fascinated to presume

That some are like my own.
