Featured Poem: The Self-Unseeing by Thomas Hardy
We read this poem in a communications team meeting a few weeks ago and found it a captivating one to explore, and have since found it to be a poem that really stays with you after reading. Written by Victorian writer Thomas Hardy - known for his dark, gothic style - we hope you find today's featured poem an interesting read.
Here is the ancient floor,
Footworn and hollowed and thin,
Here was the former door
Where the dead feet walked in.
She sat here in her chair,
Smiling into the fire;
He who played stood there,
Bowing it higher and higher.
Childlike, I danced in a dream;
Blessings emblazoned that day;
Everything glowed with a gleam;
Yet we were looking away!
