    Alfred Tennyson is one of the poets I like very much with his ability to involve a sea of emotion in lines and verses and gathering images from myths and realities, all appealing to the human heart! (Report) Reply

    And love is an emotion of this kind
    That multiplies with the lover demise
    And you keep seeing her day and night
    Till one day you join her in astral light............

    As if asking the reader Tennyson begins his poem in a wonderful way and gives his answer from his beautiful dream about the lady who has brought tears to his eyes by her loss of demise! (Report) Reply

    Just devine... how love lingers in the mind...googled the latin, it means my dreams bring you back....how lovely that he chose just that line to put in latin as when read it seems so more poignant once you have opened the box of understanding, although im sure when written most educated people would of understood it straight away and just fluently rolled it off with a rich tongue (so to speak) (Report) Reply
