I'Ve Learnt To Laugh In Grief

Delicate you are,
Fragile-agile roses!
Thou art Boldness;
Angels on earth you must be.
Praising you, I praise He.

‘Thorn bleeding laugh'
Spaced into the beautiful eyes
Of many-many wise,
All must observe, I pray,
If, not yet you observed,

I told you dear, in brief,
My brethren, Seeing them;
I've learnt to laugh in grief.
