    Wonderful. Magnificent. Tidal Lord. Metaphors of cloud. Dance between the earthly view and the heavenly concern. Our relationship to it, and it to us. Each stanza begins with Moon, each like its own letter. But still one voice, endearing like a lost love. I loved this poem, please read some of mine! (Report) Reply

    Moon is so inspiring, the moon surely is always needed to glow the surroundings of the earthly earth. This poem surely deserves 10 out of 10. (Report) Reply

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
