Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

“...for it is the fate of a woman
Long to be patient and silent, to wait like a ghost that is speechless,
Till some questioning voice dissolves the spell of its silence.
Hence is the inner life of so many suffering women
Sunless and silent and deep, like subterranean rivers
Runnng through caverns of darkness...”


Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, The courtship of Miles Standish, and other poems
