So fair, She takes the breath of men away Who gaze upon her unaware.
Whoso loves Believes the impossible.
Light tomorrow with today.
There are nettles everywhere, But smooth green grasses are more common still. The blue of heaven is larger than the cloud.
Books succeed, And lives fail.
Earth's crammed with heaven, And every common bush afire with God.
We have hearts within, Warm, live, improvident, indecent hearts.
The English have a scornful insular way Of calling the French light.
Every age, Through being beheld too close, is ill-discerned By those who have not lived past it.
May the good God pardon all good men.
