Cecil Day Lewis Quote

I have had worse partings, but none that so
Gnaws at my mind still. Perhaps it is roughly
Saying what God alone could perfectly show —
How selfhood begins with a walking away,
And Jove is proved in the letting go.


"Walking Away" (1962), p. 33 - Requiem for the Living (1964)
