I was not prepared for your demise

You will suppose that with an upright path
Your feet must struggle; in such bold ascent

Joy

Joy, what could be more eperetising than the Joy of life. what is life without joy. Love it can be given and it can never be taken. What is life like without being loved.

There is a million of things that I would rather do than love another. I would count stars day to day admiring each and everyone of them. I am greedy in nature. I do nothing which is temporary. my main reason why I would spend a lifetime counting stars. No matter how many I count each day the end is never near .

Lie close around her; leave no room for mirth
With its harsh laughter, nor for sound of sighs.

The Trail Of Ninety-eight

Gold! We leapt from our benches. Gold! We sprang from our stools.
Gold! We wheeled in the furrow, fired with the faith of fools.
Fearless, unfound, unfitted, far from the night and the cold,
Heard we the clarion summons, followed the master-lure-Gold!

While I, least worthy to survive, persist in living on.

But they had not their birth in the being without,
And the heart, not the lip, must their oracle be!

Grown milky, almost clear, like the bodies of saints.
