Barry Cornwall Deep Poems

  • 1.
    WE are born; we laugh; we weep;
    We love; we droop; we die!
    Ah! wherefore do we laugh or weep?
    Why do we live, or die?
  • 2.
    A THOUSAND miles from land are we,
    Tossing about on the roaring sea;
    From billow to bounding billow cast,
    Like fleecy snow on the stormy blast:
  • 3.
    THE SEA! the sea! the open sea!
    The blue, the fresh, the ever free!
    Without a mark, without a bound,
    It runneth the earthâ??s wide regions round;
  • 4.
    SING, I pray, a little song,
    Mother dear!
    Neither sad nor very long:
    It is for a little maid,
  • 5.
    RISE! Sleep no more! â??T is a noble morn:
    The dews hang thick on the fringed thorn,
    And the frost shrinks back, like a beaten hound,
    Under the steaming, steaming ground.

E'er swept the Bay of Fundy;
But now, good-by
To drugs, say I-
Good-by to gnawing sorrow;
I am up to-day,
