Bohemia

Rating: 3.2

Bohemia, o'er thy unatlassed borders
How many cross, with half-reluctant feet,
And unformed fears of dangers and disorders,
To find delights, more wholesome and more sweet
Than ever yet were known to the "elite."

Herein can dwell no pretence and no seeming;
No stilted pride thrives in this atmosphere,
Which stimulates a tendency to dreaming.
The shores of the ideal world, from here,

Seem sometimes to be tangible and near.

A poem of great rhythm and great rhyme look at the end every 1,3 line then at end lines 2,4,5. A great message and again so cleverly composed.
