    Stunning, stunning imagry! Eloquent, expressive commentary
    I never tire from reading Jane Kenyon...She is a metaphor for pastoral pain and pleasure (Report) Reply

    I am the one whose love
    overcomes you, already with you
    when you think to call my name..

    - ITALIAN:

    Io sono quella il cui amore
    ti sopraffà, sono già con te
    quando ti sovviene di pronunciare il mio nome.. (Report) Reply

    There is so much grace in this poem, that it nearly flys away... (Report) Reply

    I enjoyed this poem, oh special one, a 200 year old pressed blossom, the surprise at the party that makes the party swing or the missing colour from the cotten box without which we cannot finish the dress. Ruthie: o) (Report) Reply
