ROBERT BRIDGES: SWEET COMPASSIONATE TEARS

bridgesrobert21

Robert Bridges
(1844 – 1930)

Sweet compassionate tears

Sweet compassionate tears
Have dimm’d my earthly sight,
Tears of love, the showers wherewith
The eternal morn is bright:
Dews of the heav’nly spheres.
With tears my eyes are wet,
Tears not of vain regret,
Tears of no lost delight,
Dews of the heav’nly spheres
Have dimm’d my earthly sight,
Sweet compassionate tears.
