Tennyson's Poetry

In the studio: Salvaged pages from a damaged antique poetry book by Alfred Tennyson
O let the solid ground
Not fail beneath my feet
Before my life has found
What some have found so sweet;
Then let come what come may,
What matter if I go mad,
I shall have had my day.

Let the sweet heavens endure,
Not close and darken above me
Before I am quite quite sure
That there is one to love me,
Then let come what come may
To a life that has been so sad
I shall have had my day.
Alfred Lord Tennyson, Love Poems, p. 55

Walking through Clouds

I have been taking morning walks in tranquil Maryland meadows.  
There is nothing more grounding than walking through clouds.
