Sadness At The Heart Of It All


Sadness is at the heart of the end of it all-
So many are gone
So many friends
Who can bear the weight of the longing for them?

I write these words in my friends’ memory-

Kneel down, fair Love, and fill thyself with tears,
Girdle thyself with sighing for a girth
Upon the sides of mirth,
Cover thy lips and eyelids, let thine ears
