Oh Thorn!
Hurt in touching
Yet come to be closed you
O rose! greet you warmly for true
Beloved.

''The life of man is threescore years and ten, Or, if that he be strong, perhaps fourscore; Yet all things are but labour to him then, New sorrows still come on, pleasures no more. Why should there be such turmoil and such strife, To spin in length this feeble line of life? '' - Sir Francis Bacon, 'Translation of Certain Psalms into English Verse'
''A soldier's a man; A life's but a span.'' - William Shakespeare, 'Othello' ''The world's a bubble, and the life of man Less than a span.'' - Sir Francis Bacon, 'Translation of Greek Epigram into English Verse'
Indeed the lie of this world is very small and we plan to make permanent house here....
It has some truth, but not all. It it were so we should fall.
This is such a nice poem, it's a portrait of anyone's life! I love it! ! !
