Lane

.

ʹTis a long lane that has no turning. Every calamity has an ending. The darkest day, stop till to-morrow, will have passed away.

Hope peeps from a cloud on our squad,

Whose beams have been long in deep mourning;

ʹTis a lane, let me tell you, my lad,

Very long that has never a turning.”
