Robert Frost - Hannibal

Was there even a cause too lost,
Ever a cause that was lost too long,
Or that showed with the lapse of time to vain
For the generous tears of youth and song?

This wonderful poem seems to share both form and
deepest experience of moral content with the last
stanza of the poem Reluctence.

This poem really touched my heart because of the deep sympathy that lies within it. Sure it's a bit short but hey there isn't much to say on the matter.

This poem truly reflects the state of my mind at this very instant because of the short simplistic nature with a depth that takes understanding to comprehend.
