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!
