Gather, girl, the roses

Fade far away, dissolve, and quite forget
What thou among the leaves hast never known,
The weariness, the fever, and the fret…

"So soon does one learn the bitter lesson that humanity is never content just to differ from you and let it go at that. Never. They must interfere, actively and grimly, between your thoughts and yourself - with one passionate wish to level up everything and everybody."

Mixing Cocktails, Jean Rhys
