That though the radiance which was once so bright,
be now forever taken from my sight.
Though nothing can bring back the hour,
of splendor in the grass, glory in the flower.
We will grieve not, rather find,
strength in what remains behind.

by William Wordsworth

I had another post that I have been working on, but I heard this quote and just had to share it. The poem is called "Ode - Intimations of Immortality from Recollections of Early Childhood"

Beautiful and eloquent. Thank you for sharing it. :o)

Hee hee, Betsy if I worked with you, I would share my lunches. :o)

I love that quote..I may be mistaken but I think I first heard it in the movie "Splendor in the Grass"

I'm like Jeanette....first heard that poem in the movie with Warren Beatty and Natalie Wood -- one of my favorites!!

Truly hope that it inspires and comforts you today, Betsy..Blessings,
