YOU SHOULD NOT KNOW THE DESPAIR: Poetry of Emily Jane Bronte (1818/1848)

YOU SHOULD NOT KNOW THE DESPAIR

EMILY.1.1

Should not you know despair

if the stars sparkle every night;

If the dew falls silent at night

and the sun gilds the morning.

Should not you know despair,

although the tears to flow in rivers:

are not the most favorite years

forever in your heart?

Cry, you cry, so it must be;

The wind sighs of your sighs,

and tears fall from winter snow

where lie the autumn leaves;

well, soon reborn, and your destiny

since they can not be separated:

continue your journey, if not with joy,

well, never despair!

(Emily Jane Bronte)
