The Hill
Breathless, we flung us on the windy hill,   Laughed in the sun, and kissed the lovely grass.   You said, “Through glory and ecstasy we pass;Wind, sun, and earth remain, the birds sing still,When we are old, are old… .” “And when we die   All’s over that is ours; and life burns onThrough other lovers, other lips,” said I,—-“Heart of my heart, our heaven is now, is won!”
“We are Earth’s best, that learnt her lesson here.   Life is our cry. We have kept the faith!” we said;   ”We shall go down with unreluctant treadRose-crowned into the darkness!” … Proud we were,And laughed, that had such brave true things to say.—-And then you suddenly cried, and turned away.
“The Hill” by Rupert Brooke is a poem I came across in high school that really struck a chord with me. In the midst of figuring out who I was as a person, the story of the young lovers in this poem and their beliefs definitely affected my thinking. The quotation “Through glory and ecstasy we pass” is to remind myself that everything I could want is here on earth; my task is finding the courage to go after it.

The Hill

Breathless, we flung us on the windy hill,
   Laughed in the sun, and kissed the lovely grass.
   You said, “Through glory and ecstasy we pass;
Wind, sun, and earth remain, the birds sing still,
When we are old, are old… .” “And when we die
   All’s over that is ours; and life burns on
Through other lovers, other lips,” said I,
—-“Heart of my heart, our heaven is now, is won!”

“We are Earth’s best, that learnt her lesson here.
   Life is our cry. We have kept the faith!” we said;
   ”We shall go down with unreluctant tread
Rose-crowned into the darkness!” … Proud we were,
And laughed, that had such brave true things to say.
—-And then you suddenly cried, and turned away.
