TO ——.(1)

I HEED not that my earthly lot

Hath little of Earth in it,

That years of love have been forgot

In the hatred of a minute:

I mourn not that the desolate

Are happier, sweet, than I,

But that you sorrow for my fate

Who am a passer-by.

1.  The earliest form of this poem will be found in the Notes. The MS. in the possession of Mrs. W. M. Griswold is practically the same as the 1845 text. [[— ED.]]

TO. ——.

[From the Griswold MSS.]

I heed not that my earthly lot

Hath —— little of Earth in it —

That years of love have been forgot

In the hatred of a minute: —

I mourn not that the desolate

Are happier, sweet, than I,

But that you sorrow for my fate

Who am a passer by.

E. A. P.
