Epigram I: To Stella

From the Greek of Plato.

Thou wert the morning star among the living,
Ere thy fair light had fled;--
Now, having died, thou art as Hesperus, giving
New splendour to the dead.

Dreams of paradise and love. A great poem penned by an equally great poet.
at the edge of 17 it dint occor to me that anyone was paying atention
I want some tide pods.
Youth is the best part of one's life
I' the summer sky, in dreams of living light And loveliness, - have left my very heart In climes of my imagining, apart A great art of poetry. Thanks poet.
