Helen Hunt Jackson
All lost things are in the angels' keeping, Love;
No past is dead for us, but only sleeping, Love.
Jackson quotes
Father, I scarcely dare to pray,
So clear I see, now it is done,
How I have wasted half my day,
And left my work but just begun.
The voice of one who goes before, to make
The paths of June more beautiful, is thine
Sweet May!

Jackson Helen Hunt quotes
On the kingís gate the moss grew gray;
The king came not. They called him dead
And made his eldest son one day
Slave in his fatherís stead.
Jackson Helen Hunt
Like a blind spinner in the sun,
I tread my days:
I know that all the threads will run
Appointed ways.
I know each day will bring its task,
And being blind no more I ask.
