From "Maud Muller"

.... For of all sad words of tongue or pen,
The saddest are these: "It might have been!"

Ah, well! for us all some sweet hope lies
Deeply buried from human eyes;

And, in the hereafter, angels may
Roll the stone from its grave away!

John Greenleaf Whittier (18071892)

American Poetry: The Nineteenth Century (1993), ed. John Hollander, Volume One, p. 462.
