“Love’s Been Good To Me”

~ Nina Simone

“I envy not in any moods/The captive void of noble rage,/The linnet born within a cage,/That never knew the summer woods:/I envy not the beast that takes/His license in the field of time,/Unfetter’d by the sense of crime,/To whom a conscience never wakes;/Nor, what may count itself as blessed,/The heart that never plighted troth/But stagnates in the weeds of sloth;/Nor any want-begotten rest./I hold it true, whate’er befall;/I feel it, when I sorrow most;/’Tis better to have loved and lost/Than never to have loved at all.”

                   Alfred, Lord Tennyson
