Birthday party

Look how the rain drop ploughs down
The carved names who cleared moss
Whose face birthday candles mooned.
Happiness seems occasional episode.

The episode is over in each fifth line
Ah no, is it not time to move indoors
To wait for a painful drama to unfold
The years , the years, Ah, the years?

(referring to Thomas Hardy’s pessimistic poem Wind and Rain. and a famous quote from one of his novels “Happiness was but the occasional episode in a general drama of pain”)
