R. Alcona to J. Brenzaida
This stops Rosina from seeming melodramatic: This kind of love, a positive emotion that remained natural and peaceful in spite of tragedy in which case happy memories remained can be seen in Romantic works as much as extreme love, particularly with some earlier Romantic figures. Byron, meanwhile, continues to provide evidence that his speaker is simply becoming tired of life: The anaphora literally piles up, reflecting how everything is getting on top of the speaker.
Indeed, Byron wrote the poem while recovering from a hangover after a particularly drunken, amorous night at a carnival in Venice. You are commenting using your WordPress.follow site

Evening's gentle air may still restore— No: Strike it down, that other boughs may flourish Where that perished sapling used to be; Thus, at least, its mouldering corpse will nourish That from which it sprung-Eternity. Heavy looms the dull sky, Heavy rolls the sea - And heavy beats the young heart Beneath that lonely Tree -. Never has a blue streak Cleft the clouds since morn - Never has his grim Fate Smiled since he was born -.
Frowning on the infant, Shadowing childhood's joy; Guardian angel knows not That melancholy boy. Day is passing swiftly Its sad and sombre prime; Youth is fast invading Sterner manhood's time -. All the flowers are praying For sun before they close, And he prays too, unknowing, That sunless human rose! Blossoms, that the westwind Has never wooed to blow, Scentless are your petals, Your dew as cold as snow -.
Soul, where kindred kindness No early promise woke, Barren is your beauty As weed upon the rock -. Wither, Brothers, wither, You were vainly given - Earth reserves no blessing For the unblessed of Heaven! Thou shouldest live in eternal spring, Where endless day is never dim; Why, seraph, has thy erring wing Borne thee down to weep with him? I, the image of light and gladness, Saw and pitied that mournful boy; And I swore to take his gloomy sadness, And give to him my beamy joy -. How beautiful the Earth is still To thee—how full of Happiness; How little fraught with real ill Or shadowy phantoms of distress; How Spring can bring thee glory yet And Summer win thee to forget December's sullen time!

Why dost thou hold the treasure fast Of youth's delight, when youth is past And thou art near thy prime? When those who were thy own compeers, Equal in fortunes and in years, Have seen their morning melt in tears, To dull unlovely day; Blest, had they died unproved and young Before their hearts were wildly wrung, Poor slaves, subdued by passions strong, A weak and helpless prey!
Nay, smile to hear Death's billows rave, My Guide, sustained by thee? The more unjust seems present fate The more my Spirit springs elate Strong in thy strength, to anticipate Rewarding Destiny! This poem is part of a larger Gondal poem which Emily revised for publication in She cut lines , , and She added the concluding stanza, which starts with "She ceased to speak Rochelle," the names of two lovers in the Gondal saga.
In the dungeon crypts idly did I stray, Reckless of the lives wasting there away; "Draw the ponderous bars; open, Warder stern! This was when glad spring laughed in awaking pride. Then, God forgive my youth, forgive my careless tongue! I scoffed, as the chill chains on the damp flagstones rung; "Confined in triple walls, art thou so much to fear, That we must bind thee down and clench thy fetters here?
The captive raised her face; it was as soft and mild As sculptured marble saint or slumbering, unweaned child; It was so soft and mild, it was so sweet and fair, Pain could not trace a line nor grief a shadow there! The captive raised her hand and pressed it to her brow: Hoarse laughed the jailor grim: Or, better still, wilt melt my master's heart with groans? Ah, sooner might the sun thaw down these granite stones!
About her lips there played a smile of almost scorn: He comes with western winds, with evening's wandering airs, With that clear dusk of heaven that brings the thickest stars; Winds take a pensive tone, and stars a tender fire, And visions rise and change which kill me with desire—. She ceased to speak, and we, unanswering turned to go— We had no further power to work the captive woe; Her cheek, he gleaming eye, declared that man had given A sentence unapproved, and overruled by Heaven. T his poem is part of the same Gondal poem from which Emily carved "The Prisoner. G Rochelle," and added 8 lines of her own.

Thus, the positive ending in which the watcher has a spiritual experience is Charlotte's and the watcher may be seen as Emily rather than a Gondal character. In Charlotte's version, it is hard to explain the guiding light in the window of stanze 2. Cheerful is the hearth, soft the matted floor; Not one shivering gust creeps through pane or door; The little lamp burns straight, its rays shoot strong and far; I trim it well to be the Wanderer's guiding-star.
Frown, my haughty sire; chide, my angry dame; Set your slaves to spy, threaten me with shame: But neither sire nor dame, nor prying serf shall know What angel nightly tracks that waste of winter snow.

What I love shall come like visitant of air, Safe in secret power from lurking human snare; Who loves me, no word of mine shall e'er betray, Though for faith unstained my life must forfeit pay. Burn, then, little lamp; glimmer straight and clear Hush!
Poem of the week: R Alcona to J Brenzaida by Emily Brontë
He for whom I wait, thus ever comes to me; Strange Power! I trust thy might; trust thou my constancy. Vain are the thousand creeds That move men's hearts, unutterably vain, Worthless as withered weeds Or idlest froth amid the boundless main. To waken doubt in one Holding so fast by thy infinity So surely anchored on The steadfast rock of Immortality.
With wide-embracing love Thy spirit animates eternal years Pervades and broods above, Changes, sustains, dissolves, creates and rears. Though Earth and moon were gone And suns and universes ceased to be And thou wert left alone Every Existence would exist in thee. There is not room for Death Nor atom that his might could render void Since thou art Being and Breath And what thou art may never be destroyed.
Hatfield, who edited her poems, speculates that Charlotte wrote or revised this poem. It first appeared in the edition of Emily's novel and poems; no manuscript version of this poem is known. Often rebuked, yet always back returning To those first feelings that were born with me, And leaving busy chase of wealth and learning For idle dreams of things which cannot be: To-day, I will seek not the shadowy region; Its unsustaining vastness waxes drear; And visions rising, legion after legion, Bring the unreal world too strangely near.
I'll walk, but not in old heroic traces, And not in paths of high morality, And not among the half-distinguished faces, The clouded forms of long-past history. I'll walk where my own nature would be leading: It vexes me to choose another guide: Where the gray flocks in ferny glens are feeding; Where the wild wind blows on the mountain side. What have those lonely mountains worth revealing? More glory and more grief than I can tell: The earth that wakes one human heart to feeling Can centre both the worlds of Heaven and Hell.
