Darkly bright

Darkly bright

When most I wink, then do mine eyes best see,
For all the day they view things unrespected;
But when I sleep, in dreams they look on thee,
And darkly bright, are bright in dark directed.
Then thou, whose shadow shadows doth make bright,
How would thy shadow's form form happy show
To the clear day with thy much clearer light,
When to unseeing eyes thy shade shines so!
How would, I say, mine eyes be blessed made
By looking on thee in the living day,
When in dead night thy fair imperfect shade
Through heavy sleep on sightless eyes doth stay!
All days are nights to see till I see thee,
And nights bright days when dreams do show thee me.

Perfect blue sky. Those trees seem to be survivors.

A downhill I would hate to stumble upon in the dark...

Most romantic to go with the stunning romance of this image...trees on an incline sweeping every forward and up
Zak09-Dec-2012 19:33
those trees are close to the edge!

Great how they hug the hill, wonderful scene and poem.
Chris Morton09-Dec-2012 18:08
obviously a queue to get up to the top of the hill; rather nice against the blue sky

dramatic slope fringed by trees...well married to Will's stuttering verse...V
