How strange a thing is death, bringing to his knees, bringing to his antlers The buck in the snow . . . Life, looking out attentive from the eyes of the doe.

Love is not all: it is not meat nor drink Nor slumber nor a roof against the rain; Nor yet a floating spar to men that sink.

A Quote by Edna St. Vincent Millay on bitterness, fear, heart, memory, mountains, pain, quiet, and time

Time does not bring relief; you all have lied Who told me time would ease me of my pain! I miss him in the weeping of the rain; I want him at the shrinking of the tide; The old snows melt from every mountain-side, And last year's leaves are smoke in every lane; But last year's bitter loving must remain Heaped on my heart, and my old thoughts abide There are a hundred places where I fear To go, - so with his memory they brim And entering with relief some quiet place Where never fell his foot or shone his face I say,There is no memory of him here! And so stand stricken, so remembering him!
