    Published in the 1846 collection Poems By Currer, Ellis and Acton Bell under Emily's nom de plume 'Ellis Bell'.

    ***

    There should be no despair for you
    While nightly stars are burning;
    While evening pours its silent dew,
    And sunshine gilds the morning.
    There should be no despair--though tears
    May flow down like a river:
    Are not the best beloved of years
    Around your heart for ever?

    They weep, you weep, it must be so;
    Winds sigh as you are sighing,
    And winter sheds its grief in snow
    Where Autumn's leaves are lying:
    Yet, these revive, and from their fate
    Your fate cannot be parted:
    Then, journey on, if not elate,
    Still, NEVER broken-hearted!
