How useless previous feuds, when reconciling tears
Course down the channel worn by vanished frown.
How few imply half the bitterness they communicate!
Phrases greater than emotions maintain us nonetheless aside,
And, within the warmth of ardour or of pique,
The tongue is way extra merciless than the guts.
Since love alone makes it price whereas to reside,
Let all be now forgiven, and forgive.
– Alfred Austin

Dive, I need to, inward,
To be as soon as extra
What I actually am
And shall without end stay.
