Pleasure Chats, Sorrow is Silent

An old Barry McGuire song called "Walked a Mile" draws lyrics from this poem. Eight lines of pure wisdom!

I Walked a Mile with Pleasure

I walked a mile with Pleasure;
She chatted all the way;
But left me none the wiser
For all she had to say.

I walked a mile with Sorrow,
And ne’er a word said she;
But, oh! The things I learned from her,
When sorrow walked with me.

-Robert Browning Hamilton
