“How Great My Grief” (Triolet)

“How Great My Grief” (Triolet)

How great my grief, my joys how few,
Since first it was my fate to know thee!
– Have the slow years not brought to view
How great my grief, my joys how few,
Nor memory shaped old times anew,
Nor loving-kindness helped to show thee
How great my grief, my joys how few,
Since first it was my fate to know thee?



Poem “How Great My Grief” (Triolet) - Thomas Hardy
