I was afraid to put the word Poetry in the title...or Pretty! I’m not sure how many poetry fans I have on my blog...but oh, how I love poetry! My grandmother read poetry to me when I was little and I’ve always loved to hear it read aloud!
My bedroom is decorated around my painting of the Lady of Shalott
and on my nightstand I have a copy of a book of poetry by Alfred Lord Tennyson, The Princess.
It has this poem inside....
THE LADY OF SHALOTT
by ALFRED, LORD TENNYSON
“There she weaves by night and day
A magic web with colours gay.
She has heard a whisper say,
A curse is on her if she stay
To look down to Camelot.
She knows not what the curse may be,
And so she weaveth steadily,
And little other care hath she,
The Lady of Shalott.”
Many of you will remember this from Anne of Green Gables.
She recites this in the movie (and the book)!
one of my favorites simply because it has bookmarks
throughout marking someone’s favorite poems.
Here are some poetry websites for you to enjoy today!
