  • From Thomas Hardy's poem "Hap"

    If but some vengeful god would call to me
    From up the sky, and laugh: “Thou suffering thing,
    Know that thy sorrow is my ecstasy,
    That thy love’s loss is my hate’s profiting!�?

    Then would I bear, and clench myself, and die,
    Steeled by the sense of ire unmerited;
    Half-eased, too, that a Powerfuller than I
    Had willed and meted me the tears I shed.

    But not so. How arrives it joy lies slain,
    And why unblooms the best hope ever sown?
    --Crass Casualty obstructs the sun and rain,
    And dicing Time for gladness casts a moan….
    These purblind Doomsters had as readily strown
    Blisses about my pilgrimage as pain.
