Conscience And Remorse

"Good-bye," I said to my conscience--
"Good-bye for aye and aye,"
And I put her hands off harshly,
And turned my face away;
And conscience smitten sorely

But a time came when my spirit
Grew weary of its pace;
And I cried: "Come back, my conscience;
I long to see thy face."
But conscience cried: "I cannot;
Remorse sits in my place."

(The end)
Paul Laurence Dunbar's poem: Conscience And Remorse

Then he said to the moon: "O dear old moon,
