E. (edith) Nesbit Poems

  • Work
    When I am busying about,
    Sewing on buttons, tapes, and strings,
    Hanging the week's wet washing out
    Or ironing the children's things,...
  • Winter
    Hold your hands to the blaze;
    Winter is here
    With the short cold days,
    Bleak, keen and drear....
  • Windflowers
    When I was little and good
    I walked in the dappled wood
    Where light white windflowers grew,
    And hyacinths heavy and blue....
  • White Magic
    This is the room to which she came,
    And Spring itself came with her;
    She stirred the fire of life to flame,
    She called all music hither....
  • Wedding Day
    The enchanted hour,
    The magic bower,
    Where, crowned with roses,
    Love love discloses....

Elizabeth Stoddard Poem
The Wolf-Tamer
 by Elizabeth Stoddard

Through the gorge of snow we go,
Tracking, tramping soft and slow,
With our paws and sheathed claws,
So we swing along the snow,
Crowding, crouching to your pipes-
Shining serpents! Well you know,
When your lips shall cease to blow
Airs that lure us through the snow,
