“The Tower of Learning”


Its late at night here on the mountain but I wanted to share these words with you while my electric blanket is defrosting the bed! Brrrrr.

Life is ours in vain
Lacking love, which never
Counts the cost or gain.
But remember, ever
Love is linked with pain.

Light and sister shade
Shape each mortal morrow
Seek not to evade
Love’s companion, Sorrow,
and be not dismayed.

Grief is not in vain,
It’s for our completeness.
If the fates ordain
Love to bring life’s sweetness
Welcome to its pain.
