Moonless darkness stands between.
Past, the Past, no more be seen!
But the Bethlehem-star may lead me

    ......a perfect poem for the holiday season...but actually it is more perfect for the whole year long.. (Report) Reply

    Very tight poem, expressing an intense devotion humbly yet eloquently (and it's not easy to use thou art and thou wert and still sound natural) . Hopkins is a master, and this poem is delightful to contemplate. (Report) Reply

    Seems Hopkins is inwardly seeking the perfection of GOD. Shirking vanities and looking for the light. (Report) Reply

    Catholic theology expressed with a poet’s special gifts, but material interest only to Catholics. (Report) Reply

    The poet's heart shines through this prayerful verse and G.M. Hopkins was in his short life a master of the arresting phrase..... being a priest he saw the world in terms of creative conflict at times with his God. This piece is a good example of his strength as a writer. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
