Today we turned the page on a new week.
Apparently no one was born, died, disappeared, liberated, or baptized today.
Daily Readings for April 9th
- Tennyson’s “Early Spring”
- Poe’s “Ligeia”
For some reason, I have a lot of Tennyson. I am sorry that I have to post links or snippets for you to read on line. In my humble and uneducated opinion, poetry should be read from a
crappy old book.
I found “Early Spring” in The Complete Poetical Works of Alfred Tennyson Poet Laureate (Hurst & Company Publishers, no date).
Give it a read. Final verse:
For now the Heavenly Power Makes all things new, And thaws the cold, and fills The flower with dew; The blackbirds have their wills, The poets, too.
