Song

Lady Mary Wortley Montagu

 Next Poem          

How happy is the harden'd heart,
Where interest is the only view!
Can sigh and meet, or smile and part,
Nor pleas'd, nor griev'd, nor false, nor true --
Yet, have they truly peace of mind?
Or do they ever truly know
The bliss sincerer tempers find,
Which truth and virtue can bestow?

    THIS PIECE REALLY GOT ME THINKING, FEELS RELATABLE IN TODAY'S WORLD WHERE MATERIAL GAIN AND BEING NONCHALANT IS THE NORM. IT SEEMS TO CHALLENGE THAT WAY OF LIVING, MAKING ONE WONDER IF THAT REALLY BRINGS TRUE HAPPINESS OR PEACE. IT'’S A REAL GEM, STICKS WITH YOU AND MAKES YOU PONDER THE VALUES WE HOLD CLOSE. ABSOLUTELY LOVED READING IT!
