Howdy there you fine people – welcome to The Rock!
(Oops, my mind wandered there for a minute – I mean welcome to NanoPoblano Day 20!)
I was just reminiscing how far I’ve travelled this month with my found poetry marathon and took time to reflect on my progress so far. In doing so, not only did I help myself out with a little bit of Writer’s Block that I had last night but I ended up on deciding to do a poetic duet with another one of the Brontë sisters.
You may recall that I did a found poem based on the work of Charlotte Brontë earlier in the month. Here is the link to it:-
So, I thought to myself, why not see if one of the other Brontë sisters has any inspiration in her poetry for me and I am very happy to say that I managed to write a love poem based on Emily Brontë’s poem “Ah! Why, Because the Dazzling Sun”.
So without further ado (and after you have read Emily’s poem if you want to be a completionist and you should because it is rather good), here is my found love poem inspired by the sweet words of Emily Brontë, hope you enjoy it.

“At Peace In Changeful Dreams” by David Ellis
Dazzling joy you departed through your glorious eyes
With full hearts, thankful, divine
At peace in changeful dreams
The sea followed star, sweet influence so pure
A spell tranquil, the soul of nature
Through their veil, blazing worlds of light throb, glowed, both roof and floor
The wakened murmuring, to roam and return
Let me sleep and only wake with you
