Excerpt Tuesday – more lines from “The World” by Henry Vaughan

Theworld_pIp1Last week I featured the opening lines of the “The World” by Henry Vaughan (1622-1695) and this week I’ve decided to keep going with the first stanza of this classic poem. Read the whole poem here. Photograph (of a snowdrift of petals from my first spring in Boston) and composition by me.


Excerpt Tuesday – The World by Henry Vaughan


Today’s excerpt comes from Henry Vaughan’s beautiful poem “The World.” Read the whole poem here. A major Welsh poet whose popularity was revived in the last century – I learned of his poetry as a middle schooler because “The World” was featured in my favorite book at the time (and it is still one of my top 5) – A Ring of Endless Light by Madeline L’Engle. Photograph by Ms. Dawn Wenrich – go check her photography out! Composition by me.  Enjoy!
