To His Mistress


Why dost thou shade thy lovely face? O why
Does that eclipsing hand of thine deny
The sunshine of the Sun's enlivening eye?

    Definite Classic. Like Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet and Bronte's tragic Wuthering Heights. Mystical, fable-like feel. (Report) Reply

    A beautiful poem that can people can still relate to today, centuries later. This poem help's to prove that love is, and alway's will be, true and strong and will survive anything. (Report) Reply

    Beautiful poem about his mistress shying away from him and his fear that she'll leave him. He says many times that she is his life. It is a love poem through and through, with a good rhyming pattern and simple yet effective language. (Report) Reply

    A poet in love from centuries ago, may sound corny in our times; but reading aloud
    Lord Wilmot's verse taps our transcendent humanity. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Algernon Charles Swinburne

I hid my heart in a nest of roses,
Out of the sun's way, hidden apart;
In a softer bed than the soft white snow's is,
Under the roses I hid my heart.
