Poetry can help us to express things that we ourselves cannot find the right words for.
The following verse, expresses the poet’s thoughts about a loved one who has died at a young age, with beauty unsullied by the trials of life.
To help you along and give you some inspiration I have compiled a list of poetry that I like which you might find useful – take a look on my front page.
‘And Thou art Dead, as Young and Fair’
by Lord Byron
I know not if I could have borne
To see thy beauties fade;
The night that follow’d such a morn
Had worn a deeper shade:
Thy day without a cloud hath pass’d,
And thou wert lovely to the last,
Extinguish’d, not decay’d;
As stars that shoot along the sky
Shine brightest as they fall from high.
