BEST LINES

A change from the serious stuff. Which of the lines I love do you favour? I can’t choose.

Fear no more the heat of the sun,
Nor the furious winter’s rages
Thou thy worldly task hast done,
Home art gone, and ta’en thy wages;
Golden lads and girls all must,
As chimney sweepers come to dust.

 
Therefore, never send to know
For whom the bell tolls,
It tolls for thee

 

For nature, heartless, witless nature,
Will neither care nor know
What stranger’s feet may find the meadow
And trespass there and go,
Nor ask amid the dews of morning
If they are mine or no.
