Frost at Midnight

May 14, 2015
Frost at Midnight

The Frost performs its secret ministry, Unhelped by any wind. The owlet’s cry Came loud—and hark, again! loud as before. The inmates of my cottage, all at rest, Have left me to that solitude, which suits Abstruser musings: save that at my side My cradled infant slumbers peacefully. ‘Tis calm indeed! so calm, that it […]

Madness

April 19, 2015
Madness

For some reason, I miss and crave you as I haven’t done in so long. It’s like a thirst I’ve always felt, But now of my throat it got ahold. And I’m seeking for the water to quench it– Free my spirit from this longing. Yet, even as I write these verses from thin air, […]

You, Darkness

April 16, 2015
You, Darkness

You darkness, that I come from, I love you more than all the fires that fence in the world, for the fire makes a circle of light for everyone, and then no one outside learns of you. But the darkness pulls in everything: shapes and fires, animals and myself, how easily it gathers them! – […]

Asking for Roses

April 2, 2015
Asking for Roses

A house that lacks, seemingly, mistress and master, With doors that none but the wind ever closes, Its floor all littered with glass and with plaster; It stands in a garden of old-fashioned roses. I pass by that way in the gloaming with Mary; ‘I wonder,’ I say, ‘who the owner of those is.’ ‘Oh, […]

High Flight

December 15, 2014
High Flight

Oh! I have slipped the surly bonds of earth, And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings; Sunward I’ve climbed, and joined the tumbling mirth Of sun-split clouds, –and done a hundred things You have not dreamed of –Wheeled and soared and swung High in the sunlit silence. Hov’ring there I’ve chased the shouting wind along, […]

Ode on a Grecian Urn

December 12, 2014
Ode on a Grecian Urn

Thou still unravish’d bride of quietness, Thou foster-child of silence and slow time, Sylvan historian, who canst thus express A flowery tale more sweetly than our rhyme: What leaf-fring’d legend haunts about thy shape Of deities or mortals, or of both, In Tempe or the dales of Arcady? What men or gods are these? What […]

The Challenge of Silence

July 10, 2014
The Challenge of Silence

When was the last time you disconnected? When was the last time you took a peek inside your soul and entered? Do that now and take a dive into your subconscious! Any night you want but be warned… it may seem alien and extremely anomalous; For the body and mind are used to so much […]

When We Two Parted

May 15, 2014
When We Two Parted

When we two parted In silence and tears, Half broken-hearted To sever for years, Pale grew thy cheek and cold, Colder thy kiss; Truly that hour foretold Sorrow to this. The dew of the morning Sunk chill on my brow– It felt like the warning Of what I feel now. Thy vows are all broken, […]

Drowsy Birds / Somnoroase păsărele

May 12, 2014
Drowsy Birds / Somnoroase păsărele

Drowsy birds at even gliding, Round about their nests alight, In among the branches hiding… Dear, good night! Silence through the forest creeping, Lullaby the river sighs; In the garden flowers sleeping… Shut your eyes! Glides the swan among the rushes To its rest where moonlight gleams, And the angels’ whisper hushes… Peaceful dreams! O’er […]
