The Poet at the Breakfast-Table (Gosse)

Vide etiam paginam fere homonymam: The Poet at the Breakfast-Table

"The Poet at the Breakfast-Table" est carmen privatum quod Edmundus Gosse anno 1877 in epistula Augustino Dobson missa includit. Titulum sumpsit e dialogo "The Poet at the Breakfast-Table" ante quinque annos ab Oliver Wendell Holmes scripto; Gosse autem minime de rebus moralibus sed de ientaculo ipso cantat:

In rose-lit air and light perfume,
The well-appointed breakfast-room
Delights us as we tread the stair;
... The loaves are beautiful and fair
(As Wordsworth puts it), crust and crumb ...
