C. S. Lewis Poems

  • World's Desire
    Love, there is a castle built in a country desolate,
    On a rock above a forest where the trees are grim and great,
    Blasted with the lightning sharp-giant boulders strewn between,
    And the mountains rise above, and the cold ravine...
  • Victory
    Roland is dead, Cuchulain's crest is low,
    The battered war-rear wastes and turns to rust,
    And Helen's eyes and Iseult's lips are dust
    And dust the shoulders and the breasts of snow....
  • Tu Ne Quaesieris
    For all the lore of Lodge and Myers
    I cannot heal my torn desires,
    Nor hope for all that man can speer
    To make the riddling earth grow clear....
  • To Sleep
    I will find out a place for thee, O Sleep-
    A hidden wood among the hill-tops green,
    Full of soft streams and little winds that creep
    The murmuring boughs between....
  • The Witch
    Trapped amid the woods with guile
    They've led her bound in fetters vile
    To death, a deadlier sorceress
    Than any born for earth's distress...

George Meredith Poem
Modern Love Xxxii: Full Faith I Have
 by George Meredith

Full faith I have she holds that rarest gift
To beauty, Common Sense. To see her lie
With her fair visage an inverted sky
Bloom-covered, while the underlids uplift,
Would almost wreck the faith; but when her mouth
(Can it kiss sweetly? sweetly!) would address
The inner me that thirsts for her no less,
And has so long been languishing in drouth,
