Come, Walk With Me

Poem by Emily Jane Brontë

Come, walk with me,
There's only thee
To bless my spirit now -
We used to love on winter nights
To wander through the snow;
Can we not woo back old delights?
The clouds rush dark and wild
They fleck with shade our mountain heights
The same as long ago
And on the horizon rest at last
In looming masses piled;
While moonbeams flash and fly so fast
We scarce can say they smiled -

Come walk with me, come walk with me;
We were not once so few
But Death has stolen our company
As sunshine steals the dew -
He took them one by one and we
Are left the only two;
So closer would my feelings twine
Because they have no stay but thine -

'Nay call me not - it may not be
Is human love so true?
Can Friendship's flower droop on for years
And then revive anew?
No, though the soil be wet with tears,
How fair soe'er it grew
The vital sap once perished
Will never flow again
And surer than that dwelling dread,
The narrow dungeon of the dead
Time parts the hearts of men -'

    Come walk with me, come walk with me;
    We were not once so few
    But Death has stolen our company../// wow greatly written

    the soul is immortal
    the earthly body is mortal
    when the body tastes the death then the soul obtain the immortality on the way of unseen shape and if the earthly body has any pure loving feeling then the immortal soul carries it after being dead the body and seeks the another pure loving seen shape earth body to enjoy the beautiful earth of God(Report)Reply

    I know Emily Jane Bronte too well from my Eng.Lit. study years, a constant theme is coming back, that of the dead.
    A most beautiful poem about love, friendship and death is in between. True melancholic, but the Beauty of this poem is matchless! I so enjoyed this loveliest poetry, Emily created. CONGRATULATIONS for Classic Poem OTD!(Report)Reply
