The Ghost

Rating: 3.3
Peace in thy hands,
Peace in thine eyes,
Peace on thy brow;
Flower of a moment in the eternal hour,
Peace with me now.

Not a wave breaks,
Not a bird calls,
My heart, like a sea,
Silent after a storm that hath died,
Sleeps within me.

Most beautifully worded, but true full melancholy, sadness and sorrows. Daunting poem, and as I am guessing, this poem has been chosen for the third time as The Modern Poem Of The Day, most deserving, I reckon. CONGRATULATIONS to the family of the late poet. For me this is an eerie poem by a classic poet. But most beautiful in its tune. His dreamlike visions had much similarities with Blake! Really.

All the night's dews, All the world's leaves, All winter's snow Seem with their quiet to have stilled in life's dream All sorrowing now. great poem of Walter de la Mare

It’s a wonderful poem of Walter de la Mare. It fuses life with nature immaculately. It creates a strong quantum effect where time appears to be relatively stable. Thanks for posting. Chandan
