No Poem Will Stop The Ticking Of Time


No poem will stop the ticking of time
And no poem bring back
What we were when we were young-

Life has all these faces we were
At different times
And we cannot ever see ourselves again
In the Beauty of what we once were-

Death is real and final
But Death is also in Life
As Change-

We are not what we were
And we will never be-
Youth Beauty Love Happiness spontaneous Joy
Oh that Laughter is gone forever-

poet Rupert Brooke

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
