And the special powers decline;

On thy expressive power depends,
Nor would exchange thy glowing lines,
To live the lord of all that shines.

Then he passed over and I am here,
Sad and sore is this heart of mine
That has no power to shed a tear,
For, like one who rises and walks in sleep,
I am lost in a dream--I cannot weep.
"Divided" by Nora Pembroke
