    Desire is the cause of sorrowness The quotable quote somewhere I read and it is from the most enlightened one the Goutama Budha. Here the great poet choosed the subject desire which is the cause of every sorrowness in this world we can understand if we go behind every sadness and desperation I think. The great poet took the subject in minutest detail and very interesting to read and this is one of the beafull poem in this column of the great poet. (Report) Reply

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,

Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
