|Ah Sunflower! 1994-95|
Ah Sun-flower! weary of time,
Who countest the steps of the Sun:
Seeking after that sweet golden clime
Where the traveller’s journey is done.
Where the Youth pined away with desire,
And the pale Virgin shrouded in snow:
Arise from their graves and aspire,
Where my Sun-flower wishes to go.
|See What a Life, 2010|
"See what a life the gods have given us, set round with pain and pleasure. It is too strange for sorrow; it is too strange for joy." HD Thoreau
|Love's Deep Grapes, 1984|
"I saw stones weep. There is a sadness in things apart from connected with human suffering."
Virgil, The Aeneid
