    Poem Commentary

    IN MEMORY OF "GRITO" The Greatest Poet from this Site. 10/19/1949 - 12/17/2010. LOVE, AIXA.

    You, my Bright Star!

    Bright Star, would I were steadfast as thou art -

    Not in lone splendour hung aloft the night,

    And watching, with eternal lids apart,

    Like Nature's patient sleepless Eremite,

    The moving waters at their priestlike task

    Of pure ablution round earth's human shores,

    Or gazing on the new soft-fallen mask

    Of snow upon the mountains and the moors-

    No-yet still steadfast, still unchangeable,

    Pillow'd upon my fair love's ripening breast,

    To feel for ever its soft fall and swell,

    Awake for ever in a sweet unrest,

    Still, still to hear her tender-taken breath,

    And so live ever-or else swoon to death.

    Dear Aixa, how painful to read the latest news. My deepest sympathy to you and yours. His legacy will live forever. He was a dear friend to all of us here at OP. This poems is a wonderful tribute to him. May God comfort your heart through this great loss. God bless`
