Hard gifts

To some thou giv’st a deep unrest—a scorn

Of all they are or see upon the earth;

A gaze, at dusky night and clearing morn,

As on a land of emptiness and dearth;

To some a bitter sorrow; to some the sting

Of love misprized—of sick abandoning;

To some a frozen heart, oh, worse than anything! 

– George MacDonald
