Poem of the Day: Be Brave

 

From the scene in Shades of Gray, after Catherine has left Vincent at the threshold below her building, after telling him "it wasn't courage, it was love," Vincent is looking after her, a look of sultry awe on his face

 

Courtship

by Anna Katherine Green

 

Not the wind
But the soft sunshine best constrains the bud
To ope its delicate leaves. Of all the words
Of gentle courtesy and deep regard
With which I come full laden to your side,
I will but proffer one. Accept this, dear,
The choicest of my store, the rose of speech,
The sweet, I love you, which has been the gem
Of every language since the first fond hour
That woman’s smile became a good man’s heaven.
