deirdre quotes- 5 of
The time comes when our hearts sink utterly;
When we remember Deirdre and her tale,
And that her lips are dust.
To find a form that accommodates the mess, that is the task of the artist now.
More than a thousand years it is since she
Was beautiful: she trod the living grass;
She saw the clouds.
Let nothing disturb thee,
Nothing affright thee;
All things are passing;
God never changeth;
Who God possesseth
In nothing is wanting;
Alone God sufficeth.
