The big round tears
Cours'd one another down his innocent nose
In piteous chase.

Stood on her cheeks, as doth the honey-dew
Upon a gather'd lily almost wither'd.

Are but the handsells of our joys hereafter.

Tears, such as angels weep, burst forth.

A maid to see her sparrow part,
A stripling for a woman's heart:

She sees the tears of bearded men.

Thoughts that do often lie too deep for tears.

WORDSWORTH: _Intimations of Immortality._

Tears from the depth of some divine despair
Rise in the heart, and gather to the eyes,
In looking on the happy Autumn fields,
And thinking of the days that are no more.

Under the sod and the dew,
Waiting the judgment day;
Love and tears for the Blue,
Tears and love for the Gray.
