In a sea of endless cloud,
What’s a silver lining?
Such gray never sparkles
When the sun is shining!
Are your weeds emeralds,
With the sun’s mocking glow?
Are dew drops really pearls,
When weak dawn-lights show?

What’s a silver lining?
A struggle of light and dark?
If the storm were giving way,
A rainbow shows its arc.
Or perhaps it’s surrender
Of the little light within?
Of the happy light of day,
Fading, fading and defeated.
To another hue of gray.
