What is it about a sunset that makes me come over all poetical? sunset1 4-10-13It is no mystery to me that nature has inspired some our best-loved poetry: Wordsworth, Frost, Hardy, Coleridge, Keats, Whitman, it is a long list. Here are two of my favourites, and some Spanish sunsets too. sunset2 4-10-13sunset3 4-10-13Emily Dickinson’s ‘Bring me the Sunset in a Cup’…
Bring me the sunset in a cup,
Reckon the morning’s flagons up
And say how many Dew,
Tell me how far the morning leaps —
Tell me what time the weaver sleeps
Who spun the breadth of blue! sunset4 4-10-13sunset5 4-10-13Alfred Lord Tennyson’s ‘Move Eastward Happy Earth’…
Move eastward, happy earth, and leave Yon orange sunset waning slow: From fringes of the faded eve, O, happy planet, eastward go: Till over thy dark shoulder glow Thy silver sister world, and rise To glass herself in dewey eyes That watch me from the glen below. sunset6 4-10-13sunset7 4-10-135 to remember
