on a discovered curl of hair

When your soft welcomings were said,
This curl was waving on your head,
And when we walked where breakers dinned
It sported in the sun and wind,
And when I had won your words of grace

It brushed and clung about my face.
Then, to abate the misery
Of absentness, you gave it me.

Where are its fellows now? Ah, they
For brightest brown have donned a gray,
And gone into a caverned ark,
Ever unopened, always dark!

Yet this one curl, untouched of time,
Beams with live brown as in its prime,
So that it seems I even could now
Restore it to the living brow
                                                                           By bearing down the western road
                                                                        Till I had reached your old abode. 

                                                                                                                                                        -Thomas Hardy


  1. This poem has a sense of nostalgia :) Are you longing for something in your past??

    I admit that before we got talking, I was always reminiscing about the past .. It was because no present memory could then ever feel happier than the childhood days :( The days after my childhood were some suffering..

    But something happened ever since we got talking, ever since you've enlightened me about the true purpose of God dying for us, about His unconditional Grace..
    ever since then, I noticed that I stopped reminiscing about the past.. I've finally been able to let go of the past---because these are finally happier days :) :)

    Thank you dearest Joanna, thank you for all the things you've done for me!
    I couldn't have been this happy without your help, couldn't have been brought back to God if it wasn't for your work on this blog, and also for your caring!
    Thank you! ♥
