Of Longing

1869 Carbon print of Lord Tennyson, by Julia Margaret Cameron.

For this week’s quote, a sensual tidbit from the master poet of old, Alfred, Lord Tennyson…

“Half the night I waste in sighs,

Half in dreams I sorrow after

The delight of early skies;

In a wakeful dose I sorrow

For the hand, the lips, the eyes,

For the meeting of the morrow,

The delight of happy laughter,

The delight of low replies.”

~Alfred Lord Tennyson
