Anne Brontë Quote

All for myself the sigh would swell,
The tear of anguish start;
I little knew what wilder woe
Had filled the Poet's heart. I did not know the nights of gloom,
The days of misery;
The long, long years of dark despair,
That crushed and tortured thee.


Poems by Currer, Ellis, and Acton Bell (1846) - To Cowper (1842)
