Untitled

Rejoice, and men will seek you;

Grieve, and they turn and go;

They want full measure of all your pleasure,

But they do not need your woe.

Be glad, and friends are many;

Be sad, and you lose them all -

There are none to decline your nectared wine,

But alone you must drink life's gall.

What a beautiful poem. And how true is it most of the time. Thanks for posting it.
