Probably his most famous poem is Rime of the Ancient Mariner, which is filled with imagination and creativity.

His thoughts were probably the most imaginative of all Romantic poets (maybe it was all that opium! ).

Coleridge’s poetry is defined by the poetic principle of imagination, and this is what makes his poems great.

Many later poets tried to emulate his sensuous lyricism, particularly in his poems about love, one of the defining characteristics of Romantic poetry.

The poem “Presence of Love” may not be as well known as some of his other poems, but perhaps that makes it all the more special on Valentine’s Day.

‘Presence of Love’ by Samuel Taylor Coleridge ▶️

And in Life’s noisiest hour,
There whispers still the ceaseless Love of Thee,
The heart’s Self-solace and soliloquy.

You mould my Hopes, you fashion me within;
And to the leading Love-throb in the Heart
Thro’ all my Being, thro’ my pulse’s beat;
You lie in all my many Thoughts, like Light,
Like the fair light of Dawn, or summer Eve
On rippling Stream, or cloud-reflecting Lake.

And looking to the Heaven, that bends above you,
How oft! I bless the Lot that made me love you.

    छूट गए सब काम अधूरे
    All My Work Is Left Incomplete

    As was the time
    Got busy in family times
    My family responsibilities
    Became my prime duty
    Love for the in – laws grew
    Devoted my time in their well – being
    The passion which I always had
    Sacrificed for the sake of them
    Still now…..
    All my work is left incomplete
    But now when children are grown up
    I have started to heed towards my passion
    My love for writing has started to glow

    सोचा था समय निकलते
    हो जाएंगे सब काम अवश्य ही पूरे l
    समय की गति है बड़ी तेज़,
    कभी उदासी, कभी हुए निस्तेज़,
    तने बाने बुने धरा पर ,
    कोशिश कर कुछ करने की ठानी l
    कंन्द्राओं से जैसे बहता पानी
    बहुत किआ आगे बढ़ बढ़ कर l
    मेहनत के सुन्दर मोती पिरोकर l
    पर कभी बधाओं ने अपना रंग दिखाया l
    राहगीरों ने भी न अपना संग निभाया l
    चलते – चलते थक कर चूर हो गए l
    आगे बढ़ने से मज़बूर हो गए l
    अब तो ऐसा लगा है लगने
    अधूरे रह गए सारे सपने l
    व्यस्त जिंदगी में भी कितने
    छूट गए सब काम अधूरे l
