    Grieve not that winter masks the yet quick earth,
    Nor still that summer walks the hills no more;
    That fickle spring has doffed the plaid she wore
    To swathe herself in napkins till rebirth.

    These buddings, flowerings, are nothing worth;
    This ermine cloud stretched firm across the lakes
    Will presently be shattered into flakes;
    Then, starveling world, be subject to my mirth.

    I know that faithful swift mortality
    Subscribes to nothing longer than a day;
    All beauty signals imminent decay;
    And painted wreckage cumbers land and sea.

    I laugh to hear a sniveling wise one say,
    “Some winnowed self escapes this reckless way.”

    - Walter Clyde Curry, "Grieve Not"
