Shall Earth No More... by eterniss Shall Earth No More... by eterniss
Edit: Version 2 [link]


Inspired by a poem 'Shall Earth No More Inspire Thee' by Emily Bronte... I had lots of different ideas for what I wanted to do, but this developed and I liked it enough to go with it. The poem in question conjures up desolate landscapes and intense elements (to me - something to do with Wuthering Heights, I'm sure) but I've gone with a less intense environment, but the concept is there all the same...

Fantastic stock, thank you!:

Emily Bronte : Shall Earth No More Inspire Thee

Shall earth no more inspire thee,
Thou lonely dreamer now?
Since passion may not fire thee,
Shall nature cease to bow?

Thy mind is ever moving,
In regions dark to thee;
Recall its useless roving,
Come back, and dwell with me.

I know my mountain breezes
Enchant and soothe thee still,
I know my sunshine pleases,
Despite thy wayward will.

When day with evening blending,
Sinks from the summer sky,
I've seen thy spirit bending
In fond idolatry.

I've watched thee every hour;
I know my mighty sway:
I know my magic power
To drive thy griefs away.

Few hearts to mortals given,
On earth so wildly pine;
Yet few would ask a heaven
More like this earth than thine.

Then let my winds caress thee
Thy comrade let me be:
Since nought beside can bless thee,
Return--and dwell with me.
