A Reassuring Silhoutte


Through my mind's eye,
I could clearly see,
The lady and the rock,
In a single silhoutte.

The rock lay undeterred,
Amidst the lashing waves;
And so sat the lady,
In her muse.

I see great resolve,
In both of them;
For, one braves,
The lashing waves;
And another braves,
The human tide!

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
