16 Lines On Life


Life is a tale of 16 lines
of kings, queens, lords and wives,

Whose name and fame, far and wide
everyone wanting to live such lives

With glory, happiness, fun and pleasure
goodness steeped, in full measure,

No pains to weep, no woes to cry
riches to keep and magnify;
They too must be crying alone
when they leave their majestic throne

Worried by woes of subjects their,
apart from problems of their own

So,
Don't think it is best to be rich
or that Life is money's game

Everyone has his joys and sorrow
That's what gives Life its name

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
