Embryo

I FEEL a poem in my heart to-night,
A still thing growing,--
As if the darkness to the outer light
A song were owing:
A something strangely vague, and sweet, and sad,
Fair, fragile, slender;
Not tearful, yet not daring to be glad,
And oh, so tender!

It may not reach the outer world at all,
Despite its growing;
Upon a poem-bud such cold winds fall
To blight its blowing.
But, oh, whatever may the thing betide,
Free life or fetter,
My heart, just to have held it till it died,
Will be the better!



- Mary Ashley Townsend
American poet
(1832 - 1901)

Two Sides of Ecstacy

.TW O . S I D E S . O F . E C S T A C Y . . . . .

On the other side of ecstasy lies a painful emptiness. On the other side of bitterness lies joy. Where one goes the other must follow.

In the ecstasy of understanding lies the gnawing pain of a new frontier of ignorance.

In the agony of yearning lies the ecstasy of love.
In the ecstasy of prayer lies the of agony and distance before the infinite light.

There is no sweet song that is not equally bitter, save that which is shallow and meaningless........
