Happiness always goes with misery. You cannot obtain what you are longing
for until you have experienced some miserable processes.

for each moment of ecstasy
too many of despair
far and in between
happiness does repair

without compaqre
emotions of nature rare
are interred with
memories miserly and spare

alas her understanding of relativity apt but too pessimistic in light of
her biography her poetry is consistent and sad
