Sorrow has joyful shadows


Had I not crafted your company
No sorrow could have crept in.
Had you not shelved your consent

The game is lost; the play is lost.
Finality of our separation is certain.
Yet the reminiscence stands to gain.

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
