Happy Valentine's Day, dear poetry lovers.
Sir Edwin Arnold
Somewhere there waiteth in this world of ours
For one lone soul another lonely soul
Each choosing each through all the weary hours
And meeting strangely at one sudden goal.
Then blend they, like green leaves with golden flowers,
Into one beautiful and perfect whole;
And life's long night is ended, and the way
Lies open onward to eternal day.
"...And always somewhere in the distance there is a place where two people might be happy if only they were together."~ Robert Nathan, A Portrait of Jennie
