Poetry Friday: The Night-Piece: To Julia by Robert Herrick

December 26th, 2008 (04:35 pm)
thirsty

Current Mood: thirsty
Current Song: House score music

Her eyes the glow-worm lend thee,
The shooting stars attend thee;
And the elves also,
Whose little eyes glow
Like the sparks of fire, befriend thee.
- the first stanza of The Night-Piece: To Julia by Robert Herrick

I googled it yesterday and found it. And then decided that I thought the final stanza was actually a little bit creepy, which only made me like the poem more, even though creepy was probably not what the writer was going for.

I actually picked it for the mention of elves. It's closing weekend for one of my plays.
