Poetry... next tattoo






                                 I. The Soul’s Expression
                   By Elizabeth Barrett Browning (1806–1861

WITH stammering lips and insufficient sound
I strive and struggle to deliver right
That music of my nature, day and night
With dream and thought and feeling interwound,
And inly answering all the senses round        5
With octaves of a mystic depth and height
Which step out grandly to the infinite
From the dark edges of the sensual ground.
This song of soul I struggle to outbear
Through portals of the sense, sublime and whole,        10
And utter all myself into the air:
But if I did it,—as the thunder-roll
Breaks its own cloud, my flesh would perish there,
Before that dread apocalypse of soul.



I think I may have found the words I want for my next tattoo.... 
the first 3 lines of one of my fave poems.
   Now to decide on the type of script and where. 
 I think it will be on the back of my neck.
   Yes!
