Friday's Art & Verse (a bit late)

Art: The Pearls of Aphrodite, Herbert Draper, circa 1900

Wild Nights, Wild Nights

Wild nights! Wild nights!
Were I with thee,
Wild nights should be
Our luxury!

Futile the winds
To a heart in port,
Done with the compass,
Done with the chart.

Rowing in Eden!
Ah! the sea!
Might I but moor
To-night in thee!

- Emily Dickinson, 1890
