Favorite Quote:
The woods are lovely, dark, and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.

Robert Frost

Dare I compare thee to the night?
Wondrous dark, stars bright, incompare.
Nay, I think not,
For clouds at ease do blind great stars,
And days light break, doth soon end night.
Great beauty, alas, doth profess,
To be monarch, of beauty just.
But ne'er shall beauty from thee fade, through aged line or else,
For there art none, of beauty more,
And whilst thee live, there ne'er shall be.
Thou doest dwell, as in the stars,
Thine light, so bright; innumerable constellations,
No petty cloud, earthly nor divine,
Could in thee withhold, what I doest see.
