I am not resigned to the shutting away of loving hearts in the hard ground.
So it is, and so it will be, for so it has been, time out of mind:
Into the darkness they go, the wise and the lovely.  Crowned
With lilies and with laurel they go; but I am not resigned.

Lovers and thinkers, into the earth with you.
Be one with the dull, the indiscriminate dust.
A fragment of what you felt, of what you knew,
A formula, a phrase remains,—but the best is lost.

The answers quick and keen, the honest look, the laughter, the love,—
They are gone.  They are gone to feed the roses.  Elegant and curled
Is the blossom.  Fragrant is the blossom.  I know.  But I do not approve.
More precious was the light in your eyes than all the roses in the world.

Down, down, down into the darkness of the grave
Gently they go, the beautiful, the tender, the kind;
Quietly they go, the intelligent, the witty, the brave.
I know.  But I do not approve.  And I am not resigned.

very weird that a "mingo high school" is in the news today for a threat when i just finished a book where "mingo auditorium" was the spot where someone planned a violent attack. mingo is a name i had never heard before and now twice in three days.

I think I am actually going to start writing in this journal, especially now that I have deleted my Tumblr. Livejournal is way more informative and a less frivolous waste of my time, I suppose. I also want a secure place to post personal things now that I'm moving up in the world (i.e. starting a job where I feel I should care about what I post where). Not sure if anyone cares, but I'm open to making some friends on here : )
