The Classics


Works by The Masters

This page is dedicated to all those writers that have come before us. It is a place to honor the great poets of the ages--those who inspire us, feed our passion, and help us see what words can reveal and envoke.

It will contain a few of the pieces that have inspired me; others that I turn to in times of introspection, and those that just get my mind turning. I hope they do the same for you.

note--This page is still under construction. Please have patience with me while the poetry gets put up.

Sonnet 18

Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?
Thou are more lovely and more temperate:
Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,
And summer's lease hath all too short a date;
Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines.
And often is his gold complexion dimmed;
And every fair from fair sometime declines;
By chance or nature's changing course untrimmed:
But thy eternal summer shall not fade,
Nor lose possesion of that fair thou ow'st,
Nor shall death brag thou wand'rest in his shade,
When in eternal lines to time thou grow'st.
So long and men can breathe and eyes can see.
So long lives this, and this gives life to thee.

by William Shakespeare


I'm Happiest When Most Away

          I'm happiest when most away
          I can bear my soul from it's home of clay
          On a windy night when the moon is bright
          And the eye can wander through worlds of light---

          When I am not and none beside---
          Nor earth nor sea nor cloudless sky---
          But only spirit wandering wide 
          Through infinite immensity.

By Emily Bronte
