Beliefs

....Eternity
Thus...for you and me
Shall time divine/divulge
....Soul's history

Forever
....Dwell
Collapse in dust
.....Hold fast beliefs

Or

Question trust

.........Thus

Eternity then...

Might...possibly be


......Future's

......................Twisted

......................................Mystery

Simply wonderful to read Sohrab and Rustum again (after my schoolday learning) and to read it straight through and understand and enjoy it so much. Beautiful imagery, similes, metaphors, and repetition, all so evocative. Arnold displays his knowledge of landscapes, rivers, weather and is even sensitive to events from a woman’s viewpoint. His descriptions of people allow us to visualise their every movement so vividly. I wept to read again of Sohrab’s death at the hands of his father and how so very sad they must have both felt at the loss of their time together and at this tragic end.
