Nailah's Favortie Poem Friday!

By Robert Southey
Robert Southey
Let ancient stories round the painter's art,
Who stole from many a maid his Venus' charms,
Till warm devotion fired each gazer's heart
And every bosom bounded with alarms.
He culled the beauties of his native isle,
From some the blush of beauty's vermeil dyes,
From some the lovely look, the winning smile,
From some the languid lustre of the eyes.

Low to the finished form the nations round
In adoration bent the pious knee;
With myrtle wreaths the artist's brow they crowned,
Whose skill, Ariste, only imaged thee.
Ill-fated artist, doomed so wide to seek
The charms that blossom on Ariste's cheek! 

Robert Southey

I have become very fond of Robert Southey poems. With the little breaks I get, I'm either reading Southey poems and biography, or  learning more on the Roman History. 
Sounds exciting right? 
Stay tuned, I'm updating on my other lovely blogs, as we speak!
So have a wonderful weekend!
Amour Toujours
