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.

    The poem is resplendent with its thought and presentation. In the presence of so many qualities, the poem can be bracketed with great poems.The poet is a brother of every human being no doubt. (Report) Reply

    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 Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
