But the waiting time, my brothers, Is the hardest time of all.
Sarah Doudney, Psalms of Life, The Hardest Time of All.
The pure, the beautiful, the bright,That stirred our hearts in youth,The impulse to a wordless prayer,The dreams of love and truth,The longings after something lost,The spirit’s yearning cry,The strivings after better hopes,—These things can never die.Sarah Doudney
And a proverb haunts my mindAs a spell is cast,"The mill cannot grindWith the water that is past."Sarah Doudney
But the waiting time, my brothers,Is the hardest time of all.Sarah Doudney
