Illusion
- - - - - - -
Almost I could see;
A Heaven from Hell
Blue sky from pain
And a smile from veil
Almost within my reach
Could have touched

Might have chanced
That brightness
That glint and flash
From a sapphire sun
That dazzled and stunned
Sauntered through my way
It looked like a dream
Sauntered as soft away
Walking along the lone path
I saw the infinite light
So brilliant and rare coming my way
I could have caught it
But it ran away
Only to be seen
Merged with God
Almost within a twinkling of an eye away.......

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
