Hey wonderful peepz,
Today, I’m starting a series! Can I hear an Amen? Anyhoo, I’m going to be sharing with all of you amazing people some poems I studied in school. Yes? Just because I miss school. Okay so they’re mostly English and African poems. I hope you like this.
[1/05/17] Today’s own is going to be my personal favourite: CROSSING THE BAR
This was written by Alfred Lord Tennyson and here it goes:
Sunset and evening star,
And one clear call for me!
And may there be no moaning of the bar,
When I put out to sea,
But such a tide as moving seems asleep,
Too full for sound and foam,
When that which drew from out the boundless deep
Turns again home.
Twilight and evening bell,
And after that the dark!
And may there be no sadness of farewell,
When I embark;
For tho’ from out our bourne of Time and Place
The flood may bear me far,
I hope to see my Pilot face to face
When I have crost the bar.
