    haha i really like this poem. it's kind of funny, but it makes sense to me. it really hits me because it's how i feel sometimes. i'm all about the sad songs/poems, and know what it's like to have others think you're crazy because they expect you to snap out of the sadness, and just be happy. good stuff!

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,

When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
