Edgar & Elizabeth

This post is a celebration of my 2 favorite poets: Edgar Allen Poe & Elizabeth Barrett Browning. I'm very drawn to the dark beauty of Poe's writing...and the profound passion Elizabeth weaves with her words. She's a romantic and I can totally respect that!  They both capture my imagination like no other poets have ever done...with the possible exception of Jim Morrison...but he's technically a songwriter.

Edgar Allen Poe
  • There is no beauty without some strangeness.
  • The boundaries which divide love from death are at best shadowy and vague. Who shall say where the one ends and where the other begins?
  • There was much of the beautiful...much of the wanton...much of the bizarre...something of the terrible...and not a little of that which might have excited disgust.
  • Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there wondering, fearing...doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before.
  • Yes I now feel that it was then on that evening of sweet dreams...that the very first dawn of human love burst upon the icy night of my spirit. Since that period I have never seen nor heard your name without a shiver, half of delight, half of anxiety.
  • And each separate dying ember wrought its ghost upon the floor.

                                                                 Elizabeth Barrett Browning

  • Light tomorrow with today.
  • The face of all the world is changed, I think, since first I heard the footsteps of thy soul...move still, oh still, beside me.
  • I shall but love thee better after death.
  • Love me sweet with all thou art...feeling, thinking, seeing.  Love me in the lightest part...love me in full being.
  • I love thee to the level of every day's most quiet need...by sun and candlelight.

Do you have a favorite poet? Love poetry...or loathe it? Are there any poetry writers out there? I think it's an under-appreciated art form. My step-grandmother, who came to Oklahoma from Puerto Rico, was a poet. She had a few published books of poetry. Her name was Myriam Herrera Bevers and she was an amazing lady...very talented. 

I dedicate this post to her beautiful memory. ♥
