Rejoice With Those Who Rejoice,
Weep With Those Who Weep
(Rom 12, 15)

      A lake, so pure of tint
      Its depths are sure, appears
      A sun with quick-eyed glint,
      A cloud with thick-lid tears.

      It now absorbs wept rain,
      And now the orb-flashed rays;
      It chills to know cloud-pain
      And warms to show sun-gaze.

      As lakes, on top, may buoy
      Us up, yet drop down deep,
      Rejoice with those who joy,
      And weep with those who weep.
