Invictus

5122060_orig

Out of the night that covers me, Black as the Pit from pole to pole, I thank whatever gods may be For my unconquerable soul. In the fell clutch of circumstance I have not winced nor cried aloud. Under the bludgeonings of chance My head is bloody, but unbowed. Beyond this place of wrath and tears Looms but the Horror …

A Thing of Beauty

main-qimg-a698af0a76ef61338c72f64a0592384d

A thing of beauty is a joy for ever: Its loveliness increases; it will never Pass into nothingness; but still will keep A bower quiet for us, and a sleep Full of sweet dreams, and health, and quiet breathing.

Upon her head a platted hive …

Time is moving slowly, The day is almost here. The anxiety and joy is building up, For my baby boy will soon appear. I can’t wait to see your smiling face, And hold your little hand. Just then I’ll know deep inside that you’re my little man. I have so much to share with you day after day. And to …

Love Sonnet 130

love-sonnet-130

My mistress’ eyes are nothing like the sun; Coral is far more red than her lips’ red; If snow be white, why then her breasts are dun; If hairs be wires, black wires grow on her head. I have seen roses damask’d, red and white, But no such roses see I in her cheeks; And in some perfumes is there …
