The Brook | A Poem by Alfred Lord Tennyson

This stream joins the river, its final destiny. And The Brooks (as personified by Alfred Lord Tennyson) mocks the humans as ordinary mortals who get consumed by time.

Sir Tennyson’s love for nature is evident from the fact that how beautifully he adds sensuality in the description of a river.

I Measure Every Grief I meet |Poem by Emily Dickinson

This is an extremely sad poem, much like the life of Emily Dickinson. A poem about her appraisal of the sadness and grief that she meets, and I bet she meets many. This poem just keeps getting sad until the last couple of paragraphs, where she reveals that other’s grief gives her comfort. It is others too, who have suffered. And some of the pains are like hers.

The beauty of this poem lies in its simplicity. How the writer is able to find the greatest of the virtues in the simplest of things.
