I've got a Tomahawk in my side but that don't hurt me much.
If I read a book and it makes my whole body so cold no fire can ever warm me, I know that is poetry.
Look back on time with kindly eyes, He doubtless did his best; How softly sinks his trembling sun In human nature's west!

Write me of hope and love, and hearts that endured.
Sweet hour, blessed hour, to carry me to you, and to bring you back to me, long enough to snatch one kiss, and whisper goodbye again.
