  • On The Sight Of Swans In Kensington Gardens
    Queen-bird, that sittest on thy shining nest
    And thy young cygnets without sorrow hatchest,
    And thou, thou other royal bird, that watchest
    Lest the white mother wandering feet molest: ...

Poem of the day

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow Poem
Beatrice. (From Dante. Purgatorio, Xxx., Xxxi.)
 by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Even as the Blessed, at the final summons,
Shall rise up quickened, each one from his grave,
Wearing again the garments of the flesh,
So, upon that celestial chariot,
A hundred rose
ad vocem tanti senis
Ministers and messengers of life eternal.
