Be Not Sad - Poem by James Joyce

Be not sad because all men
Prefer a lying clamour before you:
Sweetheart, be at peace again -- -
Can they dishonour you?

They are sadder than all tears;
Their lives ascend as a continual sigh.
Proudly answer to their tears:
As they deny, deny.

    Bit surprised that JJ produced such a weak poem. Must be early work, juvenilia. (Report) Reply

    This try comes in the form of advice with a powerful ending. I liked the development of this piece from beginning to end.

    I think the poet did well here.
