The Pity Of The Angels.

A poem by Victor Marie Hugo

("Un Ange vit un jour.")

[LA PITIÉ SUPREME VIII., 1881.]


When an angel of kindness
Saw, doomed to the dark,
Men framed in his likeness,
He sought for a spark -
Stray gem of God's glory
That shines so serene -
And, falling like lark,
To brighten our story,
Pure Pity was seen.
