Edward Thomas

And yet I still am half in love with pain,
With what is imperfect, with both tears and mirth,
With things that have an end, with life and earth,
And this moon that leaves me dark within the door.

—  Edward Thomas, from “Liberty,” Collected Poems: Edward Thomas. (Faber & Faber January 1980) Originally published January 1st 1974.
