Solitude

Rating: 4.7
Laugh, and the world laughs with you;
Weep, and you weep alone.
For the sad old earth must borrow its mirth,
But has trouble enough of its own.
Sing, and the hills will answer;
Sigh, it is lost on the air.
The echoes bound to a joyful sound,
But shrink from voicing care.

Rejoice, and men will seek you;
Grieve, and they turn and go.

I cite here the first two lines: Laugh, and the world laughs with you; Weep, and you weep alone...............so true! The great poetess though she lived in another era, is still talking in the present language of our present society anno 2019. She spoke crystal clear and yet beautiful. I have again enjoyed very much in reading this lovely poem.
