National Poetry Day: Light

They are all Gone into the World of Light

They are all gone into the world of light!
And I alone sit ling’ring here;
Their very memory is fair and bright,
And my sad thoughts doth clear.

It glows and glitters in my cloudy breast,
Like stars upon some gloomy grove,
Or those faint beams in which this hill is drest,
After the sun’s remove.

Henry Vaughan

There’s lots more. I’ve always loved the line, ‘Like stars upon some gloomy grove’, which is why I picked this poem (or part of it).

The first line is very familiar but I'm not sure I'd ever read the whole thing. Gosh, how sad! And also on-theme!
I love the metaphysicals!

I like your poem *a lot* even if it's off-theme.
Thank you! 'Mods who are also tigers' was one of those ideas that there wasn't quite enough of to make a story :)
That's such a beautiful poem. I had forgotten it was National Poetry Day!
Glad you like it!

The radio reminded me or I'd never have known.
Very beautiful. Thanks for posting.
My pleasure!
