Go songs for ended is our brief sweet play

Written by: Francis Thompson | Biography
 | Quotes (7) |
 Go, songs, for ended is our brief, sweet play; 
Go, children of swift joy and tardy sorrow: 
And some are sung, and that was yesterday, 
And some are unsung, and that may be tomorrow. 

Go forth; and if it be o'er stony way, 
Old joy can lend what newer grief must borrow: 
And it was sweet, and that was yesterday, 
And sweet is sweet, though purchased with sorrow. 

Go, songs, and come not back from your far way: 
And if men ask you why ye smile and sorrow, 
Tell them ye grieve, for your hearts know Today, 
Tell them ye smile, for your eyes know Tomorrow.
