Shakespeare Lied

Mrs. Beaver:

In one of his plays William Shakespeare crafted the line we've all heard many times, "Parting is such sweet sorrow." What sounds great in poetry just isn't true to life in this case. Parting is just plain hard. This morning Amy was grieveing the impending departure of her sister, Lissie, to the other side of the world. Lissie held her but, of course, couldn't sweep away the reason for our 10-year-old's pain.
