When Brotherhood Speaks


Call frailty a detached bud
And call the flower a frame of grace
Call the leaf a medium
And call the wind a messenger,

Let the readers of all those lines to come
Know of your birth in the land of glory
As brother to a poet and father to a daydream
As friend to a thinker and son to another dream

And then let them those soldiers of peace
Live in that promised land of art
Where I will become a poet
And you will become my brother.

    I LIKE THE IDEA OF EACH PORTION PLAYING A PART MAKING IT A WHOLE
    I LIKE THE LINE SAYING THAT THE WIND IS A MESSENGER.
    ALL IN ALL, VERY NICE READ. WRITE MORE. (Report) Reply

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
