Poetry Wednesday, Vol. 15

Bitter-Sweet

Ah, my dear angry Lord,
Since Thou dost love,yet strike;
Cast down, yet help afford;
Sure I will do the like.

I will complain yet praise;
I will bewail, approve;
And all my sour-sweet days
I will lament and love!

-George Herbert

I love that phrase, "sweet-sour" days! Thanks for sharing this, Kris!
