When the planets align…

Found this somewhere online months ago & fell in love with it. Have kept it near me ever since.

Poetry moves me in ways that I can’t describe. The poet is a true master of the word and has the power to wield magical sensations with it.

If anyone knows who I can credit this to, please comment below ~ much appreciated.

Now, absorb & enjoy:


Two shall be born the whole wide world apart,
And speak in different tongues, and take no thought;
Each of the others’ being, and no heed.
And these o’er unknown seas to unknown lands,
Shall cross, escaping wreck, defying death;
And all unconsciously shape every act,
And bend each wandering step unto this end,
That one day out of darkness they shall meet,
And read life’s meaning in each other’s eyes.
