djcontraption: A long beauty, what is that? A song that can be sung over and over, long notes or long bones. Love is a landscape the long mountains define but don’t shut off from the unseeable distance. In fall, in fall, your trees stretch fr—Love Song Denise Levertov

IndyStarDanC: Love Song / Denise Levertov Your beauty, which I lost sight of once for a long time, is long, not symmetrical, and wears the earth colors that make me see it. A long beauty, what is that? A song that can be sung over and over, long notes or long bones. ....

Eugene Field Poem
The Bibliomaniac's Bride
 by Eugene Field
