POEM OF THE DAY: Full Many a Glorious Morning Have I See

by William Shakespeare (1564 – 1616).

 

Full Many a Glorious Morning Have I See

 

Full many a glorious morning have I see

Flatter the mountain-tops with sovereign eye,

Kissing with golden face the meadows green,

Gilding pale streams with heavenly alchemy;

Anon permit the basest clouds to ride                                         5

With ugly rack on his celestial face,

And from the forlorn world his visage hide,

Stealing unseen to west with this disgrace:

Even so my sun one early morn did shine

With all-triumphant splendour on my brow;                             10

But out, alack! He was but one hour mine;

The region cloud hath mask’d him from me now.

Yet him for this my love no whit disdaineth;

Suns of the world may stain when heaven’s sun staineth.
