Think Not All Is Over



Think not, when the wailing winds of autumn
Drive the shivering leaflets from the tree,—
Think not all is over: spring returneth,
Buds and leaves and blossoms thou shalt see.

Think not, when the earth lies cold and sealed,
And the weary birds above her mourn,—
Think not all is over: God still liveth,
Songs and sunshine shall again return.

Think not, when thy heart is waste and dreary,
When thy cherished hopes lie chill and sere,—
Think not all is over: God still loveth,
He will wipe away thy every tear.

Weeping for a night alone endureth,
God at last shall bring a morning hour;
In the frozen buds of every winter
Sleep the blossoms of a future flower.

In 1832, Stowe moved to Cincinnati, eventually marrying Calvin Stowe, a biblical scholar and an educational reformer who encouraged her writing. Stowe is most famous for her anti-slavery novel Uncle Tom’s Cabin (1852). Written in response to the Fugitive Slave Law and the death of her son, the book stirred passionate debate on the eve of the American Civil War. According the popular legend, President Lincoln is said to have described Stowe as “the little woman who wrote the book that started this Great War.” Uncle Tom’s Cabin was one of the 19th century’s bestselling, most translated books and continues to draw scholarly attention for its use of sentiment and its racial politics. more…
