Gateway to the Classics: In the Days of the Guild by Louise Lamprey
 
In the Days of the Guild by  Louise Lamprey

Venetian Glass

Sea-born they learned the secrets of the sea,

Prisoned her with strong love that left her free,

Cherished her beauty in those fragile chains

Whereof this precious heritage remains!


Venetian glass! The hues of sunset light,

The gold of starlight in a winter night,

Heaven joined with earth, and faeryland was wrought

In these the crystal Palaces of Thought.
