Poetry Plasma

blossom-802064_960_720.jpgLife is but Life! And Death, but Death!
Bliss is, but Bliss, and Breath but Breath!
And if indeed I fail,
At least, to know the worst, is sweet!
Defeat means nothing but Defeat,
No drearier, can befall!
~Emily Dickinson

  2. Very good. Reminds me of Calderón de la Barca:
    What is life? A frenzy.
    What is life? An illusion,
    A shadow, a fiction.
    And the greatest good is small,
    And all Life is a dream,
    and dreams, dreams are…
    (My translation from Spanish; there may be better english versions.)
    Be good, Abbie Lu.
