This rained out light from every part, And that with songs of joy was thrilling ; But, in the hollow ofmy heart, There ached a place that wanted filling. III.

Words surged to my lips, but were all un breathed ; Did you guess how my heart was aching ? You told me you loved me-vain comfort to know Your heart, too, with mine was breaking.
