NaPoMo 30: Poetic View

Texte: The poets were good teachers, for they taught
Earth had this joy; but that ‘twould ever be
That fortune should be perfected in me,
My heart of hope dared not engage the thought

Robert Seymour Bridges

The poets were good teachers, for they taught
Of visions unseen by the human eye
Of beauty seen beyond a simple sigh
The poets were good teachers, for they taught

Earth had this joy; but that ‘twould ever be
A gift from nature’s soul for all to share
Of perfection found in all that’s out there
Earth had this joy; but that ‘twould ever be

That fortune should be perfected in me
Even a man with an imperfect heart
Is perfected when seeing nature’s art
That fortune should be perfected in me

My heart of hope dared not engage the thought
Yet still I look with a poetic view
To a world that is always fresh and new
My heart of hope dared not engage the thought
