“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;”

~William Wordsworth

Peace and strength be with you all.

That is my favorite poem and I actually sent it to WH yesterday. (With that passage highlighted because the entire poem is way too long for him)

When I see poems like that it makes me feel like an uneducated dunce.

So many well known phrases there --yet never did I know from whence they sprang. (heh)
