    pretty good poem. i found this because i wanted to do something for my English project based off of the new alesana cd 'the emptiness'. then found out the whole album was based off of this poem. But the album is AMAZING! and even if you don't like they're music it is worth picking up just to read the lyric booklet and the short story booklet based off of this poem. it is INCREDIBLE! :) (Report) Reply

    '...The angels, not half so happy in Heaven, / Went envying her and me...'

    Somehow, the A in 'angels' just fits with the alliteration on H. Maybe it's because the Hs are all followed by vowels and two of those vowels are As?
    No matter; 'not half so happy in Heaven' is a lovely alliterative line, but it's very much improved by 'the angels' in preceding it. (Report) Reply

    This was my wife's favorite poem. When she was dying of cancer, we used to read this to each other. I feel it truly expresses the love between two people. Maybe the Angels are envious of this kind of love after all. For she was 'Loved with a Love that was more than Love.' I wish you all this Love.
