The Sadness Of Things For Sappho's Sickness.

March 26, 2016 Rasel Rana 0 Comments

Lilies will languish; violets look ill;
Sickly the primrose; pale the daffodil;
That gallant tulip will hang down his head,
Like to a virgin newly ravished;
Pansies will weep, and marigolds will wither,
And keep a fast and funeral together;
Sappho droop, daisies will open never,
But bid good-night, and close their lids for ever.

Robert Herrick (baptized 24 August 1591 – buried 15 October 1676
