From 'The Princess'

Rating: 3.0

'Now sleeps the crimson petal, now the white;
Nor waves the cypress in the palace walk;
Nor winks the gold fin in the porphyry font:
The fire-fly wakens: wake thou with me.

Now droops the milkwhite peacock like a ghost,
And like a ghost she glimmers on to me.

Now lies the Earth all Danaë to the stars,
And all thy heart lies open unto me.

It has been a real pleasure to read this poem arising out of the nature's charming landscape and then focusing on 'The Princess'. Great poem from Lord Tennyson. Thanks.
