Nothing is enough!

Nothing is enough!

No, though our all be spent
Heart’s extremest love,
Spirit’s whole intent,
All that nerve can feel,
All that brain invent,
Still beyond appeal
Will Divine Desire
Yet more excellent
Precious cost require
Of this mortal stuff,
Never be content
Till ourselves be fire.
Nothing is enough!



Poem Nothing is enough! - Laurence Binyon
