About me

I am an idealist, a romantic, and a dreamer, who is increasingly skeptical that his ideals can be clung to, that his romantic notions will be shared, and that his dreams can be realized.

=============================

"Spring and Fall"

Margaret, are you grieving
Over Goldengrove unleaving?
Leaves like the things of man, you
With your fresh thoughts care for, can you?
Ah! as the heart grows older
It will come to such sights colder
By and by, nor spare a sigh
Though worlds of wanwood leafmeal lie;
And yet you will weep and know why.
Now no matter, child, the name:
Sorrow’s springs are the same.
Nor mouth had, no nor mind, expressed
What heart heard of, ghost guessed:
It is the blight man was born for,
It is Margaret you mourn for.

--- Gerard Manley Hopkins
