Thought of the moment


When sorrows come, they come not single spies
But in battalions.
Now onto the 12th death of the year so far...

Ah well - I know that. I was meaning why did he leave it out? Did he mean to say "THEN come not single spies,but battalions"? Or "THERE come not single spies?"Only his editor messed up... !

I don't think the words are wrong or missing - they simply fit the metre.

true - but every English teacher would lambast their pupils for incorrect English! I suppose The Bard, though, as the apotheosis of English as what she is spoke, is allowed....
