Tears. Sometimes our greatest comfort. Often our darkest fear that we are about to be overwhelmed by sudden and uncontrollable feelings.From misting of the eyes, through soft drizzles on cheek to cascades that would put Niagara falls to shame the event of tears comes in all shapes and sizes. There is something primordial in their arrival. We may be the only animal to actually cry and scientists in their wish to explain everything cite the simultaneous release of endorphins to help relieve the emotional stress, the physical pain, as vital to restore the sense of calm and well-being. But not everything can be explained and pigeon-holed with certainty.Our quoted authority is not the people in white coats but those with a quill, a heart and a soul that can take these feelings of love and loss and with the ink of words put to verse feelings and emotions that can be re-lived and shared by all. As they venture through depression, war, slavery to heartache and the loss of loved ones our eyes may mist and tears gently fall at what collectively we have done, have experienced, have witnessed and lost. From Owen and Dickenson to Wheatly and Hopkins our surrender to tears may not be far away. 1 - Poems to Make You Cry - An Introduction2 - Because I Liked You by A E Housman3 - Sonnet 147 by William Shakespeare4 - A Broken Appointment by Thomas Hardy5 - So We'll Go No More a Roving by Lord Byron6 - When You Are Old by W B Yeats7 - Sonnet 90 - Then Hate Me When Thou Wilt; If Ever, Now by William Shakespeare8 - I Shall Not Care by Sara Teasdale9 - Goodbye by Alun Lewis10 - The Wind's Lament by John Morris-Jones11 - Sad-Eyed and Soft and Grey by William Morris12 - The Sad Shepherd's Passion of Love by George Peele13 - How Sweet I Roam'd From Field to Field by William Blake14 - When I Have Fears by John Keats15 - The Buried Life by Matthew Arnold16 - We Wear the Mask by Paul Laurence Dunbar17 - I Am by John Clare18 - Solitude by Ella Wheeler Wilcox19 - Ode XIV - To Solitude by Joseph Warton20 - Solitude by Harold Munro21 - Disappointment by Mary E Tucker22 - A Thought For a Lonely Death Bed by Elizabeth Barrett Browning23 - Alone by Edgar Allan Poe24 - Piano by D H Lawrence25 - Infelix by Adah Isaacs Menken26 - Sonnet 66.
