    "Butterfly"

    If i could only be a butterfly
    I would stay up all night
    I would haunt your house
    And in your bed
    While you're asleep
    I'd whisper in your ear
    I love you

    If i could only be a butterfly
    I'd never reach the ground
    I could see the fireflies
    And in your bed
    While you're asleep
    I'd whisper in your ear
    I wanna take you once
    I'll take you twice

    have only come to see you shine
    I want to undress your mind
    There's room for us both to fly
    Just let me undress your mind

    If I could only be a butterfly
    I would love all night
    I'd colour your skies
    And in your bed
    While you're asleep
    I'd whisper in your ear
    You've left a bunch of stars
    In my hand

    "The Worship of Nature"

    The harp at Nature's advent strung
    Has never ceased to play;
    The song the stars of morning sung
    Has never died away.

    And prayer is made, and praise is given,
    By all things near and far;
    The ocean looketh up to heaven,
    And mirrors every star.

    Its waves are kneeling on the strand,
    As kneels the human knee,
    Their white locks bowing to the sand,
    The priesthood of the sea!

    They pour their glittering treasures forth,
    Their gifts of pearl they bring,
    And all the listening hills of earth
    Take up the song they sing.

    The green earth sends its incense up
    From many a mountain shrine;
    From folded leaf and dewy cup
    She pours her sacred wine.

    The mists above the morning rills
    Rise white as wings of prayer;
    The altar-curtains of the hills
    Are sunset's purple air.

    The winds with hymns of praise are loud,
    Or low with sobs of pain, --
    The thunder-organ of the cloud,
    The dropping tears of rain.

    With drooping head and branches crossed
    The twilight forest grieves,
    Or speaks with tongues of Pentecost
    From all its sunlit leaves.

    The blue sky is the temple's arch,
    Its transept earth and air,
    The music of its starry march
    The chorus of a prayer.

    So Nature keeps the reverent frame
    With which her years began,
    And all her signs and voices shame
    The prayerless heart of man.

    That Music Always Round Me

    THAT music always round me, unceasing, unbeginning--yet long untaught
    I did not hear;
    But now the chorus I hear, and am elated;
    A tenor, strong, ascending, with power and health, with glad notes of
    day-break I hear,
    A soprano, at intervals, sailing buoyantly over the tops of immense
    waves,
    A transparent bass, shuddering lusciously under and through the
    universe,
    The triumphant tutti--the funeral wailings, with sweet flutes and
    violins--all these I fill myself with;
    I hear not the volumes of sound merely--I am moved by the exquisite
    meanings,
    I listen to the different voices winding in and out, striving,
    contending with fiery vehemence to excel each other in emotion;
    I do not think the performers know themselves--but now I think I
    begin to know them.

    Sonnet 116

    Let me not to the marriage of true minds
    Admit impediments. Love is not love
    Which alters when it alteration finds,
    Or bends with the remover to remove.
    O no, it is an ever-fixèd mark
    That looks on tempests and is never shaken;
    It is the star to every wand'ring bark,
    Whose worth’s unknown, although his height be taken.
    Love’s not time’s fool, though rosy lips and cheeks
    Within his bending sickle’s compass come:
    Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks,
    But bears it out even to the edge of doom.
      If this be error and upon me proved,
      I never writ, nor no man ever loved.

    Love's Coming

    She had looked for his coming as warriors come,
    With the clash of arms and the bugle's call;
    But he came instead with a stealthy tread,
    Which she did not hear at all.

    She had thought how his armor would blaze in the sun,
    As he rode like a prince to claim his bride:
    In the sweet dim light of the falling night
    She found him at her side.

    She had dreamed how the gaze of his strange, bold eye
    Would wake her heart to a sudden glow:
    She found in his face the familiar grace
    Of a friend she used to know.

    She had dreamed how his coming would stir her soul,
    As the ocean is stirred by the wild storm's strife:
    He brought her the balm of a heavenly calm,
    And a peace which crowned her life.

    The Beautiful Night

    Now I leave this cottage lowly,

    Where my love hath made her home,
    And with silent footstep slowly

    Through the darksome forest roam,
    Luna breaks through oaks and bushes,

    Zephyr hastes her steps to meet,
    And the waving birch-tree blushes,

    Scattering round her incense sweet.

    Grateful are the cooling breezes

    Of this beauteous summer night,
    Here is felt the charm that pleases,

    And that gives the soul delight.
    Boundless is my joy; yet, Heaven,

    Willingly I'd leave to thee
    Thousand such nights, were one given

    By my maiden loved to me!

    The Day Is Done

    THE DAY is done and the darkness
    Falls from the wings of Night
    As a feather is wafted downward
    From an eagle in his flight.

    I see the lights of the village
    Gleam through the rain and the mist
    And a feeling of sadness comes o'er me
    That my soul cannot resist:

    A feeling of sadness and longing
    That is not akin to pain
    And resembles sorrow only
    As the mist resembles the rain.

    Come read to me some poem
    Some simple and heartfelt lay
    That shall soothe this restless feeling
    And banish the thoughts of day.


    Not from the grand old masters
    Not from the bards sublime
    Whose distant footsteps echo
    Through the corridors of Time.

    For like strains of martial music
    Their mighty thoughts suggest
    Life's endless toil and endeavor;
    And to-night I long for rest.


    Read from some humbler poet
    Whose songs gushed from his heart
    As showers from the clouds of summer
    Or tears from the eyelids start;

    Who through long days of labor
    And nights devoid of ease
    Still heard in his soul the music
    Of wonderful melodies.

    Such songs have power to quiet
    The restless pulse of care
    And come like the benediction
    That follows after prayer.

    Then read from the treasured volume
    The poem of thy choice
    And lend to the rhyme of the poet
    The beauty of thy voice.

    And the night shall be filled with music
    And the cares that infest the day
    Shall fold their tents like the Arabs
    And as silently steal away.

    ~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

    Thanks for sharing. This one paragraph gives a wide range of amplification - We do contain elements to write a new story. I just thought what's that element. Is that something naive or dormant, or it is just waiting to be awakened? I found the answer in the same context of this phrase- I have a story to tell. That element is you. Waiting for you to start telling your story. Break the unbreakable and that element will find its virtue. As the popular person in the Bible said, "search the scripture" for it will testify about who you are and what you're looking at and for. Great post.

    'To A Butterfly'

    STAY near me---do not take thy flight!
    A little longer stay in sight!
    Much converse do I find I thee,
    Historian of my infancy !
    Float near me; do not yet depart!
    Dead times revive in thee:
    Thou bring'st, gay creature as thou art!
    A solemn image to my heart,
    My father's family!

    Oh! pleasant, pleasant were the days,
    The time, when, in our childish plays,
    My sister Emmeline and I
    Together chased the butterfly!
    A very hunter did I rush
    Upon the prey:---with leaps and spring
    I followed on from brake to bush;
    But she, God love her, feared to brush
    The dust from off its wings.

    'Twilight'

    Soft comes the hush of eventide
    And songbirds hide
    In limbs of budded trees
    To bid farewell to setting sun
    With lullabies they've sung
    Each night for centuries.

    A lark is winging swiftly home -
    Black dot alone -
    Beneath auroral clouds.
    All nature makes a homeward rush
    As twilight's rosy blush
    The eyes of night arouse.

    When, in disgrace with fortune and men's eyes,
    I all alone beweep my outcast state
    And trouble deaf heaven with my bootless cries
    And look upon myself and curse my fate,
    Wishing me like to one more rich in hope,
    Featured like him, like him with friends possess'd,
    Desiring this man's art and that man's scope,
    With what I most enjoy contented least;
    Yet in these thoughts myself almost despising,
    Haply I think on thee, and then my state,
    Like to the lark at break of day arising
    From sullen earth, sings hymns at heaven's gate;
    For thy sweet love remember'd such wealth brings
    That then I scorn to change my state with kings.

    #3 Yes, especially a poem that makes you think and is so well written. Of course Susan Sontag wrote against the perils of interpretation. Not where it advanced context but where it stifled meaning relevant to our age and time. See the PDF and part 4 of Sontag where she says

    QUOTE START : "In a culture whose already classical dilemma is the hypertrophy of the intellect at the expense of energy and sensual capability, interpretation is the revenge of the intellect upon art. Even more. It is the revenge of the intellect upon the world. To
    interpret is to impoverish, to deplete the world—in order to set up a shadow world of “meanings.” It is to turn the world into this world.(“This world”! As if there were any other.) The world, our world, is depleted, impoverished enough. Away with all duplicates of it, until we again experience more immediately what we have." : QUOTE END - SUSAN SONTAG

    Henry Van Dyke - White Bees

    I think @Dean Owen is going to love this particular poem because even though the opening six lines is all about honey-makers, the rest of Henry Van Dyke's poem "White Bees" tells us the mistake Apollo made in calling Aristæus to manage his bees.

    It turns out that not only did Aristæus loiter and not pay attention to the needs of the bees, he got sidetracked by a nymph called Eurydice and he followed her but the nymph trod on a serpent and she vanished.

    By the time Aristæus came back to the bees under his care, they had all gone and here Henry Van Dyke writes

    "Lonely Aristæus, sadly home returning, found his
    garden empty,
    All the hives deserted, all the music fled.

    Mournfully bewailing, —“ah, my honey—makers,
    where have you departed?” —
    Far and wide he sought them, over sea and shore;
    Foolish is the tale that says he ever found them,
    brought them home in triumph,
    Joys that once escape us fly for evermore."

    HAPPY ENDING?
    Now Apollo did not let Aristæus remain a lost soul in a garden he did not belong and so writes Henry Van Dyke:

    "Till the great Apollo, pitying his shepherd, loosed him from the burden
    Of a dark, reluctant, backward—looking mind."

    "White Lily Worries"

    In the meadow one white lily
    Stood patiently staring at me.
    Her leftmost petal was chewed
    By a beetle who sought fragrant food.

    The lily asked me politely
    If the marks diminished her beauty.
    She said she wanted to be perfect
    For her honeybee suitor insect.

    She told me her honeybee,
    Was gentle as could really be.
    "He would never sting a man,
    "He's been sweet as nectar since our love began."

    She turned her leaves to the sun,
    "I must eat before he comes,"
    She said as she drank. "Still,
    "He'll notice," remarked the daffodil.

    Hush, I chided, he'll understand.
    It's not her fault where the beetle chose to land
    And take his meal. Not her fault it stole
    He white purity and left these holes.

    Honeybees will buzz no matter,
    Seeking lily's honey to make them fatter.
    The holes on your leftmost petal
    Do not turn you from lily to nettle.

    Heartfelt condolences for your loss, Ken. It's always hard to lose one so loved. But there is nothing for it, except to remember that what makes the loss so hard is what you had the good fortune to enjoy for a time. And nothing changes that... or the memories.

    @Ken Boddie, What a tear jerking moving poem. Such a beautiful tribute to your sister. I'm so sorry you lost her, how long has it been? I believe as you, their spirit of our loved ones does live on and if we are quiet enough, we may even feel their presence, if even in our hearts- no one can take that from us. I can't imagine how much you must miss your sister, deepest condolences.

    The greatest truth of those whose love has permeated our blood, bones and being is in "When our loved ones slip away, That their spirit still lives on"".

    Ken Boddie you are blessed to have had a relationship like this that soaked through to your soul and the there is no price to that because we cannot call the deep grief and loss we feel that accompanies that, a price. It is called love and your poem tells me that you were blessed in sharing it.

    The winning smile is within you now as you feel this great loss. Condolences to you and thank you for letting us all to share a piece of your heart. In this sharing I hope it comforts some of the great sorrow, for you deserve that, because I think little sis's poem would probably read "One heck of a great brother who shared a life with me that gave me my winning smile".

    Your poem expresses a great love rapped with the sadness of losing someone whose time it should not have been, but sadly life deals us these blows. You have shared a great spirit with us all, and as her spirit now lives on within you, may it comfort this painful moment that you are experiencing, one we all recognize in kind, in the fullness of a poem that honours your little sis.

    Dreams, books, are each a world; and books, we know,
    Are a substantial world, both pure and good:
    Round these, with tendrils strong as flesh and blood,
    Our pastime and our happiness will grow.

    Fatima, thanks so much for sharing yet another lovely piece of writing which is profound, thought-provoking, motivational and inspirational. What a lovely buzz from a lovely young lady (if you don't mind the compliment). I'm copying our dear friend, @Milos Djukic, per your reference to fractals.
    Also, FYI, I watched some very interesting TV documentaries featuring stunning Dubai with its amazing attractions and super modern architecture. The show even highlighted a spiral shaped high-rise apartment tower which revolves on its own (for the views, I assume). Thus, if you ever have a chance to do a Live Buzz from Dubai that would really BEE awesome -- or any Live Buzz, for that matter, as I'm sure you are very articulate and telegenic behind the camera lens. Just something to consider. Thanks again for brightening our days with your poetic prose and beautiful blogging buzz!
