    The story of their lives is a record of devoted Service, and an in- spiration to those who continue to “go about doing good”. From childhood days until the time of her death Mrs. Stain continued to write Poems and Verse, and as a result of repeated requests, these have now been collected in Book .   According to one account it was written by Keats under a plum tree in the garden of Keats House, London in May Keats was inspired by hearing the sound of birdsong and penned this poem in praise of the nightingale. Like ‘Bright Star’ it is a brilliant .

      Whatever the exact mechanism, the fact that the star led the magi to Christ is evidence that the star was uniquely designed, made by God for a very special purpose. God can use extraordinary means for extraordinary purposes. Certainly the birth of our Lord was deserving of honor in the heavens. Galileo in the way the universe worked and Milton, the book of Genesis; that is, the origin myth of sin and morality. On the Morning of Christ’s Nativity. This is the month, and this the happy morn, Oft till the star that rose at ev’ning bright. Toward heav’n’s descent had slop’d his westering wheel.

Note: “day-star” (i.e., Lucifer, KJV) is not a reference to Satan as is commonly thought, but contextually is a reference to the king of Babylon (cf. Isa. ). However, this objection is nullified by the fact that Christ is unequivocally called “the bright, the morning star” in Revelation

Not in lone splendour hung aloft the night. And watching, with eternal lids apart, Like nature's patient, sleepless Eremite, The moving waters at their priestlike task. Of pure ablution round earth's human shores, Or gazing on the new soft-fallen mask.

The first two words of the sonnet were used as the title of the biopic about Keats’s life, Bright Star, starring Ben Whishaw as Keats. Emily Dickinson, ‘ Ah Moon – and Star. ’ In this poem, Dickinson does a bit of star-gazing, and concludes that, far away from her though the moon and stars are, they are not as far away as her beloved.

The next thing the star knew it was hanging in a toy shop with a whole row of other stars blue and red and silver. It itself was gold. The shop smelled of evergreen, and was full of Christmas shoppers, men and women and children; but of them all, the star looked at no one but a little boy standing in front of the counter; for as soon as the.

Bright Star; a thanksgiving for John Keats John Keats died on this day inso I am reposting an earlier blog post paying tribute to him for all his poetry has meant and continues to mean for me: Sometimes a poet, or even a single poem, can save your life.

Gay stars, little stars, you are little eyes, Eyes of baby angels playing in the skies. Now and then a winged child turns his merry face Down toward the spinning world -- what a funny place.

Eliot instructively compares two sonnets--Prayer by Herbert and Holy Sonnet 14 by Donne. Eliot finds in Donne more of the "orator," a contrast to the more intimate tone of Herbert, a contrast that may reflect the size of Donne's.

The English writer and Anglican cleric John Donne is considered now to be the preeminent metaphysical poet of his time. He was born in to Roman Catholic. The Star of Bethlehem, or Christmas Star, appears only in the nativity story of the Gospel of Matthew where "wise men from the East" are inspired by the star to travel to Jerusalem.

There, they met King Herod of Judea, and asked him: "Where is the one who has been born king of the Jews. We have come to pay homage to the newborn king of the Jews.". Herod calls his scribes and priests who quote. More commonly referred to as the "three wise men" or "three kings," the journey of the Magi is an amazing story of obedience, faith and worship.

Join the fantastic story of these three companions as they set their sights on a bright star in the heavens that would ultimately lead them to the Christ-child, the King of all kings. According to Colin J. Humphreys in "The Star of Bethlehem—a Comet in 5 BC—and the Date of the Birth of Christ," from Quarterly Journal of the Royal Astronomical Society, Jesus was probably born in 5 B.C., at the time the Chinese recorded a major, new, slow-moving comet—a "sui-hsing," or star with a sweeping tail in the Capricorn region of the sky.

Jarman's Unholy Sonnets is a sequence of sonnets written to follow his previous collection, Questions for Ecclesiastes. Almost every type of sonnet is found in this collection. The sonnets are a form of devotional poetry, unlike what has been written before, such as Donne's sonnets, which is why Jarman wrote Questions for Ecclesiastes and Reviews: 4.

In his recent book, The Great Christ Comet—Revealing the True Star of Bethlehem (), Colin Nicholl makes the case that a long-period comet, which appeared in the heavens in 6 BC, was the “star.” Although the amount of research on comets done by Nicholl is impressive, I am not convinced of his conclusions, especially the 6 BC date.This simple little picture book is the retelling of a traditional Russian folk tale about an old woman who is visited by the Three Kings as they follow the star in search of the Child.
