Letters_Of_Note: "I have been exposed to the handsomest, most creative and intelligent man in Cambridge...I see the power and voice in him that will shake the world alive. Ted had written many virile, deep, banging poems..." ~Sylvia Plath on Ted Hughes to her mother, 1956

Letters_Of_Note: "...We love the flesh of the earth & the spirit of that thin, exacting air which blows beyond the farthest planets. All is learning, discovering, & speaking in a strong voice out of the heart of sorrow & joy...I have never had so much love to give before." ~Sylvia Plath, 1956

Poem of the day

Christina Rossetti Poem
Is The Moon Tired?
 by Christina Rossetti

Is the moon tired? she looks so pale
Within her misty veil:
She scales the sky from east to west,
And takes no rest.

Before the coming of the night
The moon shows papery white;
Before the dawning of the day
