Baptism


This mark of love if by error removed from thee,
that without thy presence alone,
else be in simple fold my vain endeavour
upon world's e'er effacing page;
but who'd read? who has eyes enough to read
what in mind's eye I still behold,
darkly lit in bewailing night asleep;
and that ceremony of a star,
oft bestow'd by thy graceful ease,
would bespeak of virgin mother born,
her bridal song in high heavens.

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
