    ..........a beautiful stanza
    ~Nature in turn conceived, obeying an impulse as I;
    And the emulous heaven yearned down, made effort to reach the earth,
    As the earth had done her best, in my passion, to scale the sky:
    Novel splendours burst forth, grew familiar and dwelt with mine,
    Not a point but found and fixed its wandering star;
    Meteor-moons, balls of blaze: and they did not pale nor pine,
    For earth had attained to heaven, there was no more near nor far. ~ (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
