Parting at Morning -- Robert Browning

Guest poem submitted by Aseem Kaul:
(Poem #814) Parting at Morning
 Round the cape of a sudden came the sea,
 And the sun look'd over the mountain's rim:
 And straight was a path of gold for him,
 And the need of a world of men for me.
-- Robert Browning
I don't know about other people, but every time I think of sending in a
guest poem to the Minstrels, I'm beset by this feeling that all my favourite
poems have already been done (dammit, you even have Desolation Row!!). So
it's a smugly surprised me who's sending in these two Browning poems [one of
which - "Meeting at Night" - has been set aside for later - t.] which I
simply worship but which, for all my ardent searching, I can't find in the

Anyway, the poems. Both are incredibly visual - to a point where you have
only to shut your eyes to see the scene described blaze before you in
gorgeous technicolour. And both have an almost magically musical quality
that is so typical of Browning (see for instance, "A Toccata of Gallupi's",
Minstrels poem #526). But most importantly, I think, both have a concise
directness that would be the envy of many a modern poet, let alone of the
Victorians. Perhaps you can imagine a poem that says less and expresses
greater feeling with more vividness than "Parting at Morning". I can't.

Beautiful poem, because most of the poems I've read in here didn't have rhyme and this one was the exception, this is the style I like the perfect rhyme.
