Katherine Eleanor Conway
“I've borne full many a sorrow, I've suffered many a loss — / But now, with a strange, new anguish, I carry this last dread cross; / For of this be sure, my dearest, whatever thy life befall, / The cross that our own hands fashion is the heaviest cross of all. / ... / The crosses we make for ourselves, alas! are the heaviest ones of all.”
Katherine Eleanor Conway, U.S. poet
(1853 - 1927)
