MY beautiful! my beautiful! that standest meekly by
With thy proudly arched and glossy neck, and dark and fiery eye;
Norton’s biography is astonishing. This poem always makes me cry.
aah, the memories of being a young girl with her much adored pony! I still have an arab - a rescue horse, at deaths door - and he's the sweetest little boy. I loved this poem then, and it's as much if not more beautiful now.
Poem mentioned in novel of Herman Wouk, The City Boy. I googled it, and poet Caroline Norton was mentioned in a recent Victoria story line. Very interesting.
One of my favorite poems- for the last 40 years! As time would have it, I see/feel this poem about people too, not just my horses. Very touching.
Yes—I’ve loved this poem since first reading it in the early 50s (I’m now 76.) used to be repeat the first stanza. Still love it!
This poem was recited to me by my mother in the early 50s I was Enchanted then and now.
........an amazing write.....could envision this beautiful scene....so nicely written..
Very good poem Caroline.
You do realize this was written in the 1800s? It’s a classic.
