Is It Possible
(1503-1542 / Kent / England)

Is It Possible

Is it possible
That so high debate,
So sharp, so sore, and of such rate,
Should end so soon and was begun so late?
Is it possible?

Is it possible
So cruel intent,
So hasty heat and so soon spent,
From love to hate, and thence for to relent?
Is it possible?

Is it possible
That any may find
Within one heart so diverse mind,
To change or turn as weather and wind?
Is it possible?

Is it possible
To spy it in an eye
That turns as oft as chance on die,
The truth whereof can any try?
Is it possible?

It is possible
For to turn so oft,
To bring that lowest which was most aloft,
And to fall highest yet to light soft:
It is possible.

All is possible
Whoso list believe.
Trust therefore first, and after preve,
As men wed ladies by licence and leave.
All is possible.

This poem has strong echoes for the degenerate state of affairs of our times. One can get a glimpse into the rotten condition of the much hyped golden era of Elabethan rule. ----Dr Sharad Rajimwale

With a complex human mind yes all is possible. Very interesting poem. All emotions expressing so clearly and in the end we are left with one amazed feeling. All is possible on the stage of life.
'All is possible' is the ultimate answer to all the questions encountered by the poet. Thanks.
