'Light Delight'


My light be my delight.
As beauty tis a gray.
A strange light in day.
When time doth breaks away.

The lighted table light.
The lighted candle light tis bright.

My dream of light is to come a day.
A lighted path of delight.
As marvelous sight is creeping light.
When lighted holly-hawks come play.

The light did bide for time.
The today thus far an end.

My reckon delight be light.
As a strange night light.
A guide to me it is come.
When a time is fitted and lighted come.

The arrow brightly lit.
The corner stone tis tapped to glow.

My light be as delight.
As beauty tis to come to grow.
A strange time grew gray.
When doth time did break it-self to dawn away.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
