I memorised Emily Brontë's "The Old Stoic" the first time I read it. It always moves me to tears and has become my mantra for days when I'm depressed and feel hopeless.

The Old Stoic

Riches I hold in light esteem,
And Love I laugh to scorn;
And lust of fame was but a dream,
That vanished with the morn:

And if I pray, the only prayer
That moves my lips for me
Is, “Leave the heart that now I bear,
And give me liberty!”

Yes, as my swift days near their goal:
’Tis all that I implore;

I really enjoyed this. Her writing is so musical. Also very sort of mysterious--I feel like I'm out in the misty moors reading this stuff. I recommend this for anyone who writes lyrics for sure, plus fans of the Brontes.

i am not a huge fan of poetry, and it was too soon to read another brontë; however, it was time for a classic and this was a once-bought and long forgotten book i came across while visiting home. i am so glad i decided to read this! emily's style does not disappoint, and i forgot how much i loved her dark, moor-y, weather-focused, and death-obsessed style. love.
I don't think I am deep enough to fully understand these poems yet...I will eventually reread them, and maybe they will make more sense later in life.

I heart Emily. I carry around this book in my purse and am reminded of that fact when I am waiting in line at the grocery store or waiting to fall asleep.

I really enjoyed the language and storytelling of Emily Bronte's writing. I'm going to have to pick up my own copy someday.

“Fall, leaves, fall; die, flowers, away;
Lengthen night and shorten day;
Every leaf speaks bliss to me
Fluttering from the autumn tree.
I shall smile when wreaths of snow
Blossom where the rose should grow;
I shall sing when night’s decay
Ushers in a drearier day.”
