    Thanks for your objectively focused question:
    the answer to which is that I for one appreciate its sense of the brevity of human life.

    Your thoughts, divegeester, would be quite welcome.

    To be honest, I think it is worded in such a way that it presents the reader with a sense of the author's pompousness.

    JS, your own definitions of "temporal" and "eternal" within the context of this quotation by William S. Merwin would be helpful.

    I think because it is cryptic. I can't find a purpose in the concept of performing affections with ceremony. The whole thing is lost on me. Why would I ceremoniously perform affections patiently because I know there's an end? What end? I'm confused! 😕 😉

    2 Corinthians. One is the other one's father but he is not the first one's son. 🙄

    I thought the "Thank you" at the end was a nice touch.

    Albeit optimistic.
