Welcome this brilliant new entry with "Eyes and Tears," a poem written by the wonderful Andrew Marvell.

Andrew Marvell CLASSIC POETRY

This afternoon I took time out to watch  "Doctor's" one of the very few soaps! I do watch, mainly because it is always on whilst having my lunch.
It was a strange episode, made even more strange by the classic piece of poetry that was spoken during the end credits.

The Poem's called

 "EYES AND TEARS"
and was written by one of England's wonderful Metaphysical Poets.


His name             ANDREW MARVELL. 1621 - 1678 living during the
Cromwell reformation, both before and after the execution of Charles I. 

THIS IS HIS POEM, I KNOW YOU WILL LOVE IT


EYES AND TEARS

HOW wisely Nature did decree,
With the same eyes to weep and see ;
That, having viewed the object vain,
They might be ready to complain !
And, since the self-deluding sight
In a false angle takes each height,
These tears, which better measure all,
Like watery lines and plummets fall.
Two tears, which sorrow long did weigh
Within the scales of either eye,
And then paid out in equal poise,
Are the true price of all my joys.
What in the world most fair appears,
