Closed Chapter

End of Chapter
I’ve closed a chapter in my life. Thank God it’s over too.
“Where there’s no pain, there is no gain.” But is that maxim true?
Are rose-buds pained before they bloom? In pain do fruit-trees fruit?
In pain do acorns break the earth and into saplings shoot?
I asked them once. They don’t reply. They rustled – then were mute.
