What the eye does not see, the heart does not rue ~ Mary Collyer

With rue my heart is laden

WITH rue my heart is laden

For golden friends I had,

For many a rose-lipt maiden

And many a lightfoot lad.

By brooks too broad for leaping

The lightfoot boys are laid;

The rose-lipt girls are sleeping

In fields where roses fade.

- A. E. Housman (1859–1936).
