Remorse– Is Memory– Awake -

Remorse–  is Memory–  awake -
Her Parties all astir -
A Presence of Departed Acts -
At window–  and at Door –
 
Its Past -  set down before the Soul
And lighted with a Match -
Perusal–  to facilitate –
And help Belief to stretch -
 
Remorse is cureless -  the Disease
Not even God–  can heal –
For ’tis His institution -  and
The Adequate of Hell -
