Poem By Sarojini Naidu

Nay, do not grieve tho' life be full of sadness,
Dawn will not veil her spleandor for your grief,
Nor spring deny their bright, appointed beauty
To lotus blossom and ashoka leaf.

Nay, do not pine, tho' life be dark with trouble,
Time will not pause or tarry on his way;
To-day that seems so long, so strange, so bitter,
Will soon be some forgotten yesterday.

Nay, do not weep; new hopes, new dreams, new faces,
The unspent joy of all the unborn years,
Will prove your heart a traitor to its sorrow,
And make your eyes unfaithful to their tears.

Hold on! ! ! Do not give up easily in life. Thanks for sharing this poem with us.
Such a beautiful poem and apt for a day such as this that the world is brooding over the loss of a great legend, Kobe Bryant.
So true! So beautifully expressed!
I hope this poem is great!
