First, is a work by English poet, Philip Larkin, whose inspiration came from an odd incident he encountered in the summer of 1979, promoting him to write about compassion and the brevity of all life.
The Mower - Philip Larkin
The mower stalled, twice; kneeling, I found
A hedgehog jammed up against the blades,
Killed. It had been in the long grass.
I had seen it before, and even fed it, once.
Now I had mauled its unobtrusive world
Unmendably. Burial was no help:
Next morning, I got up and it did not.
The first day after a death, the new absence
Is always the same; we should be careful
Of each other, we should be kind While there is still time.
我们应该相互顾念， 我们应该善良仁慈 在我们仍然可以之时。
