Here are a few beautiful lines from my all time favourite writer, Khalil Gibran (1883-1931), whose writings have given me solace even as a youngster. I have recently been reading a compilation of his verses called “The Little Book of Life” by Neil Douglas Klotz. You may want to read it, if you are a fan like me. Or, if you have never read him before, but would like to dive in to an exploratory journey of life, in the uncharted territories of literature.
Autumn and Spring
In the autumn, I gathered all my sorrows and buried them in my garden.
And when April returned and spring came to wed the earth, there grew in my garden beautiful flowers unlike all other flowers.
And my neighbours came to behold them, and they all said to me,
“When autumn comes again, at seeding time, will you not give us the seeds of these flowers that we may have them in our garden.”
