Eternal Friend


I always know the sun still smiles;
Though earth has turn'd her face away,
And sky has freed her darkest tress.

I always know the wind still walks;
Though trees like bronze statues stand,
And feathers sleep like heavy rocks.

I always know the heart still speaks;
Though ants' whispers seems far loud,
And corpses call me their silent one.

I always know the future is bright;
Though fists fear to face a flower,
And smile shuts to sights of sighs.

But if there comes a day of dark;
When senses fall to time's sword,
And faith flies o'er forgotten fields,

I will always know This friend will stay;
(Till time and matter end their day.)
These verses I etch, these verses I etch.

Poem of the Day

poet William Butler Yeats

WINE comes in at the mouth
And love comes in at the eye;
That's all we shall know for truth
Before we grow old and die.
