The Company Of Lovers

Rating: 2.8

We meet and part now over all the world;
we, the lost company,
take hands together in the night, forget

We, who sought many things, throw all away
for this one thing, one only,
remembering that in the narrow grave
we shall be lonely.

Death marshalls up his armies round us now.

Their footsteps crowd too near.

This poem was written about 1940 when around the world men were going off to war not knowing if they'd ever see their loved ones again. It is short, simple, and utterly beautiful, it makes me cry! |
