"Nature's Sad Reality"

#OTD It’s the birthday of Emily Brontë, who was born on this day in 1818. 

Brontë wrote:
Reason, indeed, may oft complain
For Nature's sad reality,
And tell the suffering heart, how vain
Its cherished dreams must always be;
And Truth may rudely trample down
The flowers of Fancy, newly-blown.
