Tonight’s Poetry Friday

I made a #reading friend at work and she has supplied me with a few reads from local #southernillinois authors. Here, local writer and fellow #iraqwar Veteran shares poetry from 2012-2016. Thanks patti for fueling my thoughts. I think I’ll return the favor🤗📖 #poetry #poetrycommunity #amreading #FridayReads #book #booklovers #BookWorm #POEMS #poetweet #poetryofinstagram #poemsporn #poemsofinstagramContinue reading “Tonight’s Poetry Friday”

A Gothic Poem by Robert Maturin

The limner’s art may trace the absent feature, And give the eye of distant weeping faith To view the form of its idolatry; But oh! the scenes ‘mid which they met and parted; The thoughts–the recollections sweet and bitter,– Th’ Elysian dreams of lovers, when they loved,– Who shall restore them? By Robert Maturin
