Farewell

Farewell to thee! but not farewell
To all my fondest thoughts of thee:
Within my heart they still shall dwell;
And they shall cheer and comfort me.

Bid the future pay the past With joy for anguish, smiles for tears? Great conceptualization. Thanks for sharing it here.
I have a vision to write like this, only if god would bless me enough to.w
Aww. How sublime the last stanza runs!
.........one of the best farewell poems I have ever read....enjoyed..
This verse below is part of Farewell by Anne Bronte in a poetry book that I own. However it seems to be part of another Anne Bronte poem - Severed and Gone. Can anyone explain this? Life seems more sweet that thou didst live, And men more true that thou wert one: Nothing is lost that thou didst give, Nothing destroyed that thou hast done.
