Love Sonnet 142: 'Searching far and earnest for what I lack'


Searching far and earnest for what I lack,
I started out front, heading straight forward,
Then returned, one day, way back of my shack,
Finding not a pittance as due reward;
On a course pristine, without tracks or trails,
I claim for myself every land I find,
And also the islands reached by my sails,
But what good are these, when just left behind?
But while there with you, in those trysts of ours,
I claimed Heavens as many as I've found,
That when trekking to galaxies and stars,
The sweetish feeling followed me around;
...It subsided not, though how Fate unfurled,
...No matter how far I went from this world.

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,
