by Emily Brontë (1818 - 1848)

When days of beauty deck the earth
Language: English 
When days of beauty deck the earth
Or stormy nights descend
How well my spirit knows the path
On which it ought to wend

It seeks the consecrated spot
Beloved in childhood's years
The space between is all forgot
Its sufferings and its tears
