Today I will be posting two poems of the day since I missed you all yesterday. Today is the last day of women poet’s of the 1800’s. Next week will start off a fresh new set of women from the 1900’s. The first poet I’m posting a poem from today is by Louise Bogan.
A passion wholly of the mind,
Thought divorced from eye and bone
Ecstasy come to breath alone.
I broke my life, to seek relief
From the flawed light of love and grief.
With mounting beat the utter fire
Charred existence and desire.
It died low, ceased its sudden thresh.
I had found unmysterious flesh–
Not the mind’s avid substance–still
Passionate beyond the will.
