Poem Hunter
A Slumber Did My Spirit Seal
(1770-1850 / Cumberland / England)

A Slumber Did My Spirit Seal

A slumber did my spirit seal
I had no human fears:
She seemed a thing that could not feel
The touch of earthly years.

No motion has she now, no force;
She neither hears nor sees;
Rolled round in earth's diurnal course,
With rocks, and stones, and trees.

Nice poem
To me, this is one of the most wonderful poems I've ever read
Amazing beauty expressed through brevity.
William Amazing poetic skills here
