Samuel Taylor Coleridge

The Presence Of Love

Samuel Taylor Coleridge was an English poet, literary critic and philosopher who, with his friend William Wordsworth, was a founder of the Romantic Movement in England and a member of the Lake Poets.






And in Life's noisiest hour,
There whispers still the ceaseless Love of Thee,
The heart's Self-solace and soliloquy.

  You mould my Hopes, you fashion me within ;
  And to the leading Love-throb in the Heart
  Thro' all my Being, thro' my pulses beat ;
  You lie in all my many Thoughts, like Light,
  Like the fair light of Dawn, or summer Eve
  On rippling Stream, or cloud-reflecting Lake.
And looking to the Heaven, that bends above you,
How oft ! I bless the Lot, that made me love you.
