Thou still unravish'd bride of quietness!
Thou foster-child of silence and slow time
Sylvan historian, who canst thus express
A flow'ry tale more sweetly than our rhyme:
What leaf-fring'd legend haunts about thy shape
Of deities or mortals, or of both,
In Tempe or the dales of Arcady?
What men or gods are these? What maidens loth?
What mad pursuit? What struggle to escape?
What pipes and timbrels? What wild ecstasy?
--Ode on a Grecian Urn
My mother was one of the most amazing people I have ever met and will probably ever meet. She spent her life caring for others,She always put herself before others.She would often go out of her way to reach those who were in need. She was also often a counsellor when the times called for it.I knew I could come to her no matter what the reason or circumstance.I loved her with all my heart and will truly miss her.
