Tom O'Roughley

Rating: 5.0
'THOUGH logic-choppers rule the town,
And every man and maid and boy
Has marked a distant object down,
An aimless joy is a pure joy,'
Or so did Tom O'Roughley say
That saw the surges running by.
'And wisdom is a butterfly
And not a gloomy bird of prey.
'If little planned is little sinned
But little need the grave distress.
What's dying but a second wind?

It's wonderful! I mean I don't get it but I really like it! Logic-choppers rule the town... Good old Tom O'Roughley, dancing a measure on a dead friend's grave... It's fantastic.
