From Wikisource

by Emily Brontë
From Poems by Currer, Ellis, and Acton Bell (1846) and reprinted in The Complete Poems of Emily Brontë (1908).

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!
