My Absence and a Bit of Poetry

Hi All!

I’m sorry I’ve been away. My concentration currently elsewhere, I’ve not forgotten this space and will return when I can spend some time.  In the meantime, here’s a little something by one of the authors in my dissertation and sourced from poetryfoundation.org.

An Ocean Musing

BY HENRIETTA CORDELIA RAY

Far, far out lie the white sails all at rest;
Like spectral arms they seem to touch and cling
Unto the wide horizon. Not a wing
Of truant bird glides down the purpling west;
No breeze dares to intrude, e’en on a quest
To fan a lover’s brow; the waves to sing
Have quite forgotten till the deep shall fling
A bow across its vibrant chords. Then, lest
One moment of the sea’s repose we lose,
Nor furnish Fancy with a thousand themes
Of unimagined sweetness, let us gaze
On this serenity, for as we muse,
Lo! all is restless motion: life’s best dreams
Give changing moods to even halcyon days.
