The passage of time

"Though nothing can bring back the hour
of splendor 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."

"Thanks to the human heart
by which we live.

Thanks to its tenderness,
its joys, its tears.

To me the meanest flower
that blows...

can give thoughts that do often lie
too deep for tears."
