Poem -The vale of rest

The Vale of Rest is published in the Pre-raphaelite society book, a collection of poems inspired by the Pre-raphaelite artists. The following is an extract from the poem written by JAJones. The book is available at:

Recount on me…from your perspective
This Vale of Rest, a fathomless scene?
A picture of awe frames the indebted captive
Transcend curious Amaranth your mine to wean:
Stand at the edge times eternal consign:
Prolific time guides every visitation,
This day broods in wistfulness design,
I through you set my sights, smitten contemplation:
The boundless liberty of the mind, faithful restorer,
Redeems summers gaze from a reclining sun
In the ascending evening: nights vapour
Overshadows the vale, submerge wholesome
The fascination like a subterranean pioneer;
Cleave the scene embed the shroud,
Atone sorrows clay to visionary clouds.
 (Extract by Jenny Amelia Jones)
