    'Then seek not, sweet, the If and Why
    I love you now until I die.
    For I must love because I live
    And life in me is what you give.'

    Christopher John Brennan was a brilliant scholar and he was never given the recognition of his genius in his native country Australia. I am obsessed with his poetry and his life stories. I collect everything I can of his. The above poem is my favoutite and I read it every day. (Report) Reply
