Poetry Friday: Spirits by Robert Bridges

July 30th, 2010 (06:16 am)

Current Mood: thirsty
Current Song: The musicbox theme from White Collar

Angel spirits of sleep,
White-robed, with silver hair,
In your meadows fair,
Where the willows weep,
And the sad moonbeam
On the gliding stream
Writes her scatter'd dream:

Angel spirits of sleep,
Dancing to the weir
In the hollow roar
Of its waters deep;
Know ye how men say
That ye haunt no more
Isle and grassy shore
With your moonlit play;
That ye dance not here,
White-robed spirits of sleep,
All the summer night
Threading dances light?

- Spirits by Robert Bridges

I've chosen this poem in honor of The Fallen series by Thomas E. Sniegoski, all of which have been named New York Times bestsellers. I couldn't be happier for you, Tom...and for Gabe, Mulder's protégé.
