Love's Vicissitudes

As Love and Hope together
Walk by me for a while,
Link-armed the ways they travel
For many a pleasant mile -
Link-armed and dumb they travel,
They sing not, but they smile.

Hope leaving, Love commences
To practise on the lute;
And as he sings and travels
With lingering, laggard foot,
Despair plays obligato
The sentimental flute.

Until in singing garments
Comes royally, at call -
Comes limber-hipped Indiff'rence
Free stepping, straight and tall -
Comes singing and lamenting,
The sweetest pipe of all.

Robert Louis Stevenson

2. pentru cei ce nu contenesc sa-si puna intrebarea:

Iubirea - ce-i iubirea? O inimă plângând;
Mâini frânte; şi tăceri; şi-o mare disperare.
Dar viaţa ce-i? S-aştepţi cu-nfrigurare;
Să vezi venind iubirea, apoi s-o vezi plecând.

Robert Louis Stevenson
