A thought in two Moods

I read a beautiful poem and wanted to share it with the rest of you.
The poem is:

A Thought In Two Moods
———————————-

I saw it — pink and white — revealed
Upon the white and green,
The white and green was a daisied field,
The pink and white Ethleen.

And as I looked it seemed in kind
That difference they had none;
The two fair bodiments combined
As varied miens of one.

A sense that, in some mouldering year,
As one they both would lie,
Made me move quickly on to her
To pass the pale thought by.

She laughed and said: ‘Out there, to me,
You looked so weather-browned,
And brown in clothes, you seemed to be
Made of the dusty ground!’

– Thomas Hardy

Hope you liked it.
