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....

 by Sidney Lanier

'Spring-germs, spring-germs,
I charge you by your life, go back to death.
This glebe is sick, this wind is foul of breath.
Stay: feed the worms.

'Oh! every clod
Is faint, and falters from the war of growth
And crumbles in a dreary dust of sloth,
