I climbed a hill as high as hope;
I swam a sea as deep as dread;
I bound my fear up with a rope
To hear what Weeping Willow said.

I heard her whisper through her sighs:
"The world has lost all dreams but one.
Though night's dark tears may cloud your eyes,
Look - joy is rising with the sun.

"For fear cannot be bound with rope,
And many swimmers drown in dread;
But no one falls who climbs with hope."
That's what Weeping Willow said.

And so I laid my sorrows by
And sang my beating heart to sleep.
And that, my sighing friend, is why
I'm dancing while the willows weep.

~Captain Gidding, chapter 27.
