Sonnet Sunday!


Hello Readers!

I have recently started getting into poetry...I know *GROAN*, but there are so many beautiful poems out there and beautiful many to discover and read. So...I am going to post a new poem every's my new meme. Let me know what you think! I'll have a linky up soon for people who want to share their favorite poems and join Sonnet Sunday. So for FAVORITE poet of all time Sir Alfred Lord Tennyson.

Interesting fact: He was Poet Laureate (royal poet) during Queen Victoria's reign in England. Very cool.

Princess: A Medley

The splendour falls on castle walls
And snowy summits old in story:
The long light shakes across the lakes,
And the wild cataract leaps in glory.
Blow, bugle, blow, set the wild echoes flying,
Blow, bugle; answer, echoes, dying, dying, dying.
O hark, O hear! how thin and clear,
And thinner, clearer, farther going!
O sweet and far from cliff and scar
The horns of Elfland faintly blowing!
Blow, let us hear the purple glens replying:
Blow, bugle; answer, echoes, dying, dying, dying.

O love, they die in yon rich sky,
They faint on hill or field or river:
Our echoes roll from soul to soul,
And grow for ever and for ever.
Blow, bugle, blow, set the wild echoes flying,
And answer, echoes, answer, dying, dying, dying. 

This poem was composed by Sir Alfred Lord Tennyson

  1. That's a great idea. I've been doing a Sunday blog called, Shakespeare's Sonnets Sunday because I've been trying to understand poetry and above all Shakespeare.


  2. This feature is great! I've quite a few favourite poems but the one I like the most is Evening Solace by Emily Bronte =)
