- Books, Literature, and Writing
A Collection of Literary Logic - Part 1
A few years back, I decided to publish a book that will basically feature poems written by other people and some of my personal compositions. Well, I belong to a group of people known to procrastinate. And so it never happened. I have now decided to share these collection through by blogs. These collection reflects my guiding and misguiding principles in life, my morals and "im-morals", my wisdom and stupidity , my beliefs and disbeliefs.
AMBITION (William Henry Davies) I had ambition by which in sin, the angels fell; I climb, and step by step, O Lord, ascended into hell. Returning now to peace and quiet and made more wise, Let my descent and fall, O Lord, be into Paradise. ALL BUT BLIND (Walter de la Mare) All but blind In his chambered hole, Gropes for worms The four clawed mole. All but blind In the evening sky, The hooded bat Twirls softly by. All but blind In the burning day, The barn-owl blunders On her way. And blind as are These three to me, So blind to someone I must be. CROSSING THE BAR (Alfred Lord Tennyson) Sunset and evening star And one clear call for me! And may there be moaning of the bar, When I put out to sea. But such a tide as moving seems asleep, Too full for sound or foam, When that which drew from out the boundless deep, Turns again home. Twilight and evening bell And after that, the dark! And may there be no sadness of farewell When I embark. For tho' from out our bourne of Time and Place The flood may bear me far. I hope to see my Pilot face to face When I have crost the bar.
I shall be adding to this collection once a week or more often of my schedule permits. I will also eventually include my own poetry. I would love to read your comments. Tell me how this poems connect to you or if does at all...
