Life's Opera

Like an opera-house is the world, I ween,
Where the passionate lover of music is seen
In the balcony near the roof:
While the very best seat in the first stage-box
Is filled by the person who laughs and talks
Through the harmony's warp and woof.

(The end)
Ella Wheeler Wilcox's poem: Life's Opera

Even soWe find the sea of sorrow. Black as night The sullen surface meets our frightened gaze, As down we sink to darkness and despair.But at the depths--such beauty! such delight! Such flowers
