(Our first quote from the playwright/poet.  Wish I “got it”, but I generally don’t “get” poetry.  When I see “engraves our faces” I think of wrinkles.  So, by not crying we get wrinkles???  Her Wikipedia page was pretty interesting though.  She lived a Wilde life, like a female Oscar Wilde.  It turns out she had a few connections to the writer throughout her life.  Very interesting .  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
