Poem of the day

The Main Regret
 by George Meredith

[Written for the Charing Cross Album]


Seen, too clear and historic within us, our sins of omission
Frown when the Autumn days strike us all ruthlessly bare.
They of our mortal diseases find never healing physician;
Errors they of the soul, past the one hope to repair.
