Alice Meynell Young Poems

  • 1.
    I come from nothing; but from where
    Come the undying thoughts I bear?
    Down, through the long links of death and birth,
    From the past poets of the earth,
  • 2.
    The child not yet is lulled to rest.
    Too young a nurse, the slender Night
    So laxly holds him to her breast
    That throbs with flight.
  • 3.
    Listen, and when thy hand this paper presses,
    O time-worn woman, think of her who blesses
    What thy thin fingers touch, with her caresses.

  • 4.
    On London fell a clearer light;
    Caressing pencils of the sun
    Defined the distances, the white
    Houses transfigured one by one,
  • 5.
    O Spring, I know thee! Seek for sweet surprise
    In the young children's eyes.
    But I have learnt the years, and know the yet
    Leaf-folded violet.
  • 6.
    Rich meanings of the prophet-Spring adorn,
    Unseen, this colourless sky of folded showers,
    And folded winds; no blossom in the bowers;
    A poet's face asleep in this grey morn.

Poem of the day

Alfred Lord Tennyson Poem
 by Alfred Lord Tennyson

1. Is it the wind of the dawn that I hear
in the pine overhead?
2. No; but the voice of the deep as it hollows
the cliffs of the land.
1. Is there a voice coming up with the
voice of the deep from the strand,
Once coming up with a Song in the
flush of the glimmering red?
