Love Sonnet 141: 'Seems Aphrodite Lavished You With Charms'


Seems Aphrodite lavished you with charms,
When your most loving heart may just suffice,
My Odyssey led home which your love warms,
Where no Siren can waylay or entice;
As giant waves shipwrecked me like before,
With crests so high, they reach up to the sky
And valleys that expose the ocean floor;
I owe it to the gods; I did not die;
But graver obstacles pass me each day,
Monsters and beasts, sheer loneliness and storms,
And yet the cause of my greatest dismay
Are ugly souls in beauteous of forms;
......And I now fear your beauty in excess,
......Might it enrage some jealous goddesses.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
