"It Will Not Change"


It will not change now
After so many years;
Life has not broken it
With parting or tears;
Death will not alter it,
It will live on
In all my songs for you
When I am gone.

    Love. Heart. Soul. The essence of and memory of emotion. This is what Sarah's words say to me. (Report) Reply

    It will live on
    In all my songs for you
    When I am gone.

    the essence of the question here is the 'It'

    what it is that will live on? Her love? or hate? her despair? or her bliss?
    she did not mention about 'it' anyway.
    That is the mystery of her poem.
    and that makes it interesting. (Report) Reply

    Actually, Michael Pruchnicki, Shakespeare's words are irrelevant and also longer. This is Sarah Teasdale's poetry and it's gorgeous. (Report) Reply

    Indeed poet's words are words! They are incorporated permanently in poems immortal! (Report) Reply

    In answer as 'Years Wash Away'

    In my heart
    I hold a love.
    That years
    may never wash

    away nor parch.
    In golden years.
    In my heart
    I hold a love. (Report) Reply

    As long as these poems of mine are read, Sarah says, my love for you will not change. Shakespeare said in fewer words the same thing - Sonnet 55 - 'Your praise shall still find room /even in the eyes of all posterity..' (Report) Reply

    It is to late, for change
    years are it's tears,
    as they float away;
    Life was it's boat it is,
    lost was yours it parted,
    it is a heart, to change,
    dreams home is death. (Report) Reply

    constancy of love expressed in so few words...the words chosen being remarkable in their simplicity....could shakespeare have managed it such starkness..? (Report) Reply

    Formally OK but superior greeting card quality. There are many much better poems expressing the constancy of love, not least Shakespeare's 'Let me not to the marriage of true minds/admit impediments...' (Report) Reply
