A Face


If one could have that little head of hers
Painted upon a background of pure gold,
Such as the Tuscan's early art prefers!

    I admire the imagery of hyacinth leaning to kiss her parted lips. This image is very specific and memorable. (Report) Reply

    A very good poem with perfection of imagination of asthetic face of angel like beauty with so much words to say about the complexion.Minute points on the creative side is also praiseworthy and it is very good to read aloud and also understand with once own understanding. I respect the poet very much. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Sara Teasdale

I thought of you and how you love this beauty,
And walking up the long beach all alone
I heard the waves breaking in measured thunder
As you and I once heard their monotone.
