Poem of the day
In Memory Of John And Robert Ware
by Oliver Wendell Holmes
No mystic charm, no mortal art,
Can bid our loved companions stay;
The bands that clasp them to our heart
Snap in death's frost and fall apart;
Like shadows fading with the day,
They pass away.
The young are stricken in their pride,
Read complete poem
Imagination is the eye of the soul.
