Compassion by Ella Wheeler Wilcox (1850 - 1919).

All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/compassion-by-ella-wheeler-wilcox/
Ella Wheeler Wilcox was an American author and poet. Her works include Poems of Passion and Solitude, which contains the lines "Laugh, and the world laughs with you; weep, and you weep alone". This poem is taken for the collection 'Poems of '. ( Wikipedia)

Compassion by Ella Wheeler Wilcox, read for LibriVox.org by [your name].
[Add, if you wish, date, your location, and/or your personal url.]
Then read the poem:
He was a failure, and one day he died.
Across the border of the mapless land
He found himself among a sad-eyed band
Of disappointed souls; they, too, had tried
And missed their purpose. With one voice they cried
Unto the shining Angel in command:
‘Oh, lead us not before our Lord to stand,
For we are failures, failures! Let us hide.’

Yet on the Angel fared, until they stood
Before the Master. (Even His holy place
The hideous noises of the earth assailed.)
Christ reached His arms out to the trembling brood,
With God’s vast sorrow in His listening face.
Come unto Me,’ He said; ‘I, too, have failed.’

At the end of your reading, leave a space and then say:
End of poem. This recording is in the public domain.

Please leave 5 seconds of silence at the end of your recording.
