If it’s a teardrop on the cheek of eternity (Tagore), then it must have been hanging on that cheek for 370 years. Transient it is not. Eternal it is not. Built out of love and sorrow, the love and sorrow only last as long as the mourner/builder. Beyond that, should the beholders pity the emperor? Or should they envy the queen.
