''THEY ARE NOT LONG'' (Vitae Summa Brevis)
HEY are not long, the weeping and the laughter,
Love and desire and hate:
I think they have no portion in us after
We pass the gate.
They are not long, the days of wine and roses:
Out of a misty dream
Our path emerges for awhile, then closes
Within a dream.
By 'An Anthology of Modern Verse'.
