    Certainly a poet must be missing some loving passion.

    I could relate to this poem. He lost a loved one, most likely this is written about his wife, Virginia, who died of tuberculosis. This poem is lovely!

    I think he speaks of a lighthouse guiding him through the storm the lighthouse his lover of course who haunts him in his dreams the place where a lonely spirit roams an the day star the sun awakening him in the morning his joy departed.

    I think the poets sorrow is felt even in his dream! A nice poem in rhyming scheme which touches the heart.
