Splendour In The Grass

Recommended Posts

I felt I most post this poem tonight. May it bring some comfort to each of us as we approach the new year. I know each of us are suffering, may this help find some peace. Love to each of you.

What though the radiance

which was once so bright

Be now for ever taken from my sight,

Though nothing can bring back the hour

Of splendour in the grass,

of glory in the flower;

We will grieve not, rather find

Strength in what remains behind;

In the primal sympathy

Which having been must ever be;

In the soothing thoughts that spring

Out of human suffering;

In the faith that looks through death,

In years that bring the philosophic mind.

William Wordsworth
