  • ...as the heart grows older

    It will come to such sights colder

    By and by, nor spare a sigh

    Though worlds of wanwood leafmeal lie;

    And yet you will weep know why.

    smells like fall

  • Foaled of the white sea-horses,

    Washed in the lambent waters of the sun.

    (francis thompson, from the night of forebeing)

  • We are the Pilgrims, master; we shall go

    Always a little further: it may be

    Beyond that last blue mountain barred with snow

    Across that angry or that glimmering sea.

    White on a throne or guarded in a cave

    There lives a prophet who can understand

    Why men were born: but surely we are brave

    Who take the Golden Road to Samarkand.

  • I found this word several years ago in a dictionary of archaic English; its definition was given as something marvelous or dazzlingly good.
