Old October

"All things on earth point home in old October: sailors to sea, travellers to walls and fences, hunters to field and hollow and the long voice of the hounds, the lover to the love he has forsaken."--Thomas Wolfe

Again

Tell me how many beads there are
In a silver chain
Of evening rain,
Unravelled from the tumbling main,
And threading the eye of a yellow star: -
So many times do I love again.
--Thomas Lovell Beddoes

Eternal

“The dawn is not distant, nor is the night starless; love is eternal.”

 

--Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Absence

--Fran├žois Duc de La Rochefoucauld
