Its Shelby!
Okay, I AM ADDICTED to poems.
Writing, Reading, and Trying to live up to the impossible.
If you got any good ones that you think are amazing, send em to me.
I'll tell you what I think and post it.

Psalms 23.

The Lord to me a shepherd is,
      want therefore shall not I:
He in the folds of tender grass,
      doth cause me down to lie:
To waters calm me gently leads
      restore my soul doth he:
He doth in paths of righteousness
      for his name's sake lead me.
Yea, though in valley of death's shade
      I walk, none ill I'll fear:
Because thou art with me, thy rod,
      and staff my comfort are.
For me a table thou hast spread,
      in presence of my foes:
Thou dost anoint my head with oil;
      my cup it overflows.
Goodness and mercy surely shall
      all my days follow me:
And in the Lord's house I shall dwell
      so long as days shall be.

I Love Thee; Eliza Acton.

 I love thee, as I love the calm
    Of sweet, star-lighted hours!
I love thee, as I love the balm
    Of early jes'mine flow'rs.

I love thee, as I love the last
    Rich smile of fading day,
Which lingereth, like the look we cast,
    On rapture pass'd away.

I love thee as I love the tone
    Of some soft-breathing flute
Whose soul is wak'd for me alone,
    When all beside is mute.

I love thee as I love the first
    Young violet of the spring;
Or the pale lily, April-nurs'd,
    To scented blossoming.

I love thee, as I love the full,
    Clear gushings of the song,
Which lonely-sad-and beautiful-
    At night-fall floats along,

Pour'd by the bul-bul forth to greet
    The hours of rest and dew;
When melody and moonlight meet
    To blend their charm, and hue.

I love thee, as the glad bird loves
    The freedom of its wing,
On which delightedly it moves
    In wildest wandering.

I love thee as I love the swell,
    And hush, of some low strain,
Which bringeth, by its gentle spell,
    The past to life again.

Such is the feeling which from thee
    Nought earthly can allure:
'Tis ever link'd to all I see
    Of gifted-high-and pure!
