Best Poem of Rene Francois Armand Prudhomme

In This World

In this world all the flow'rs wither,
The sweet songs of the birds are brief;
I dream of summers that will last

In this world the lips touch but lightly,
And no taste of sweetness remains;
I dream of a kiss that will last

In this world ev'ry man is mourning
His lost friendship or his lost love;
I dream of fond lovers abiding

Read the full of In This World


Along the quay, the great ships,
that ride the swell in silence,
take no notice of the cradles.
that the hands of the women rock.

But the day of farewells will come,
when the women must weep,
and curious men are tempted
towards the horizons that lure them!
