    Better than such discourse doth silence long,
    Long, barren silence, square with my desire;
    To sit without emotion, hope, or aim,
    In the loved presence of my cottage-fire,


    Sometimes I wonder how much is lost in noise, the noble art of silent sitting, listening watching a fire's flames, is a world realm of solitude wonder; into which minds great or low may soar, peace contentment stolen smokes soothes, waiting beyond the veil, an open waiting exploration door :) (Report) Reply

    easily shouldered aside, the lie; not so easily, malignant truth; the first can be deleted, the second can be only held at bay- and that 's the (undeletable) malignant truth. Wordsworth at his most believably disingenuous! Fine melody.. Simple, readable. MM (Report) Reply

    Needs to be desanctified,
    to lose a lot of adjectives
    to be meet for modern ears,
    but there's nothing wrong with his fears (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
