A Poem Sent to Me by Jenny Stocker

A dear friend of mine, and exquisite artist from Chicago, Jenny Stocker sent me this piece by Thomas Lovell Beddoes. It’s called The Second Brother.

Love? Do I love? I walk
Within the brilliance of another’s thought,
As in a glory. I was dark before,
as Venus’ chapel in the black of night:
But there was something holy in the darkness,
Softer and not so thick as the other where;
And as rich moonlight may be to the blind,
Unconsciously consoling. Then love came,
Like the out-bursting of a trodden star.

And here are some stunning prints made by Jenny Stocker that I love.
