|A feeling of sadness and longing|
That is not akin to pain,
And resembles sorrow only
As the mist resembles the rain.
Longfellow.The Day is Done.
|For time will teach thee soon the truth,|
There are no birds in last years nest.
Longfellow.It is not always May.
|For of all sad words of tongue or pen,|
The saddest are these: It might have been!
