If you’ve been around for a while, you may remember that time I trawled through Clockwork Angel (Cassandra Clare) and collected all the poetry into a post…or five. It took a while, but it was fun! Or, at least, I thought it was fun. So we’re doing it again! I know that Clockwork Prince would be the next logical choice, but I can’t find it, so we’re moving on.
In Memoriam A.H.H. – Alfred Lord Tennyson I love this poem! Cassandra quotes so much Tennyson, and I honestly can’t blame her. This poem is really long, but lovely.
We have but faith: we cannot know;
For knowledge is of things we see
And yet we trust it comes from thee,
A beam in darkness: let it grow.
British Folk Rhyme This is a cute little traditional poem! I like how it sounds when you read it out loud.
Marry on Monday for health,
Tuesday for wealth,
Wednesday the best day of all,
Thursday for crosses,
Friday for losses, and
Saturday for no luck at all.
The Conqueror Worm – Edgar Allan Poe I think this is a great poem! It’s dark and weird and creepy, but then again it is Poe.
