    It is a shame there are so few of Landon's poems on this site. I have now collected over a thousand.

    So good...nice poem...

A Suttee

GATHER her raven hair in one rich cluster,
Let the white champac light it, as a star
Gives to the dusky night a sudden lustre,
Shining afar.

Shed fragrant oils upon her fragrant bosom,
Until the breathing air around grows sweet;
Scatter the languid jasmine's yellow blossom
Beneath her feet.

[Hata Bildir]
