Sorrow and Joy


first_imgThe placid morning nap is sweetEspecially when the spring breeze is dallingWith the flowers and trees around the casementAnd the delicate fragrance of the roses permeatingEverywhere.The paths of glory lead but to the grave.We merry today and tomorrow we die intestateSome woo fame; some woo wealthBut doomsday shall be the endThe salt has lost its tasteAnd if worst comes to worst,We all shall bowAnd indeed paradise shall be unreachableOur thoughts and deeds are evilI know mercy shall never show its face nor goodnessOur hearts have become so darkAnd psyche filled with fiendsThe frame of minds of man has become vileWe laughAnd the world laugh with usBut when we cry, we cry along.Sorrow is along; joy is togetherThe moon wanes when fullAnd summer wanes as autumn approachesThe sweet prospects, sweet birds and sweet flowersShall soon lose their sweetnessAnd that no man shall live foreverShare this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img
