  Guerdon  

 

Upon the white cheek of the Cherub Year
            I saw a tear.
Alas!    I murmured, that the Year should borrow
            So soon a sorrow.
Just then the sunlight fell with sudden flame:
            The tear became
A wondrous diamond sparkling in the light -
            A beauteous sight.

Upon my soul there fell such woeful loss,
            I said, "The Cross
Is grievous for a life as young as mine."
            Just then, like wine,
God's sunlight shone from His high Heavens down;
            And lo! a crown
Gleamed in the place of what I thought a burden -
            My sorrow's guerdon.

       - Ella Wheeler Wilcox
