Nor seek to know the look of that which dies

    It is a cheerful sort of sorrow. The kind when you are sad but you know there will be brighter skies ahead and you take that and you walk forward.

    How true...and how sad. No beauty can be as perfect as a dream we never see come true. Wonderful poem. (Report) Reply
