Poetry Friday: In the Beginning by Harriet Monroe

April 29th, 2016 (05:49 am)

Current Mood: contemplative
Current Song: Half-Sleep by Novelette

When sunshine met the wave,
Then love was born;
Then Venus rose to save
A world forlorn.

For light a thousand wings
Of joy unfurled,
And bound with golden rings
The icy world.

And color flamed the earth
With glad desire,
Till life sprang to the birth,
Fire answering fire,

And so the world awoke,
And all was done,
When first the ocean spoke
Unto the sun.

- In the Beginning by Harriet Monroe

I love picturing the "thousand wings / Of joy unfurled!!"
