Di Palo De Scalzi Belleno Bertrand Russell







Throug the long years

I sought peace,

I found ecstasy,

I found anguish,

I found madness,

I found loneliness,

I found the solitary pain,

That gnaws the heart,

But peace I did not find.

Now, old and near my end,

I have known you,

And, knowing you,

I have found both ecstasy and peace

I know rest After so many long years.

I know what life and love may be.

Now, if I sleep

I shall sleep fulfilled.
