Where Have You Been All My Life?
from Longfellow’s "Endymion"
A reminder, gentle reader, that there is someone for everyone! Someone who comes along and says "Where have you been all my life?" To spring, to new beginnings, to life!
"…O drooping souls, whose destinies
Are fraught with fear and pain,
Ye shall be loved again!
No one is so accursed by fate,
No one so utterly desolate,
But some heart, though unknown,
Responds unto his own.
Responds, as if with unseen wings,
An angel touched its quivering strings;
And whispers, in its song,
‘Where hast thou stayed so long?’…"
