Caroline Elizabeth Sarah Norton Poems

  • 101.  
    I.

  • 102.  
    WHEN fallen man from Paradise was driven,
    Forth to a world of labour, death, and care; Still, of his native Eden, bounteous Heaven
  • 103.  
    SOUND not the Horn!--the guarded relic keep:
    A faithful sharer of its master's sleep: His life it gladden'd--to his life belong'd,--
  • 104.  
    A FIRST walk after sickness: the sweet breeze
    That murmurs welcome in the bending trees, When the cold shadowy foe of life departs,
  • 105.  
    I.

  • 106.  
    HOW Memory haunts us! When we fain would be
    Alone and free, Uninterrupted by his mournful words,
  • 107.  
    WHERE the red wine-cup floweth, there art thou!
    Where luxury curtains out the evening sky;-- Triumphant Mirth sits flush'd upon thy brow,
  • 108.  
    THY name was once the magic spell, by which my thoughts were bound,
    And burning dreams of light and love were wakened by that sound; My heart beat quick when stranger tongues, with idle praise or blame,
  • 109.  
    LOVE not, love not! ye hapless sons of clay!
    Hopeâ??s gayest wreaths are made of earthly flowersâ?? Things that are made to fade and fall away
  • 110.  
    OH! if the winds could whisper what they hear,
    When murmuring round at sunset through the grove;If words were written on the streamlet clear,
  • 111.  
    I.

  • 112.  
    KNOW ye in ages past that tower
    By human hands built strong and high? Arch over arch, with magic power,
  • 113.  
    SHE is standing by her loved one's side,
    A young and a fair and a gentle bride, But mournfulness hath crost her face
  • 114.  
    A WORD is ringing thro' my brain,
    It was not meant to give me pain; It had no tone to bid it stay,
  • 115.  
    THEY loved one another! young Edward and his wife,
    And in their cottage-home they dwelt, apart from sin and strife.Each evening Edward weary came from a day of honest toil,
  • 116.  
    I do not love thee!-no! I do not love thee!
    And yet when thou art absent I am sad; And envy even the bright blue sky above thee,

Poem of the day

A. E. Housman Poem
With Rue My Heart Is Laden
 by A. E. Housman

With rue my heart is laden
For golden friends I had,
For many a rose-lipt maiden
And many a lightfoot lad.

By brooks too broad for leaping
The lightfoot boys are laid;
The rose-lipt girls are sleeping
...
