Here you will find the Poem Guerdon of poet Ella Wheeler Wilcox
Upon the white cheek of the Cherub Year I saw a tear. Alas! I murmured, that the Year should borrow So soon a sorrow. Just then the sunlight fell with sudden flame: A tear became A wondrous diamond sparkling in the light ? A beautiful sight. Upon my soul there fell such woeful loss, I said, `The Cross Is grievous for a life as young as mine.? Just then, like wine, God?s sunlight shone from His high Heavens down; And lo! a crown Gleamed in the place of what I thought a burden ? My sorrow?s guerdon.
