Elizabeth Eleanor Siddal Poems

  • At Last
    O mother, open the window wide
    And let the daylight in;
    The hills grow darker to my sight
    And thoughts begin to swim. ...
  • Worn Out
    Thy strong arms are around me, love
    My head is on thy breast;
    Low words of comfort come from thee
    Yet my soul has no rest. ...
  • Dead Love
    Oh never weep for love thatâ??s dead
    Since love is seldom true
    But changes his fashion from blue to red,
    From brightest red to blue, ...
  • True Love
    Farewell, Earl Richard,
    Tender and brave;
    Kneeling I kiss
    The dust from thy grave. ...
  • Early Death
    Oh grieve not with thy bitter tears
    The life that passes fast;
    The gates of heaven will open wide
    And take me in at last. ...

Poem of the day

Coventry Patmore Poem
The Storm
 by Coventry Patmore

Within the pale blue haze above,
Some pitchy shreds took size and form,
And, like a madman's wrath or love,
From nothing rose a sudden storm.
The blossom'd limes, which seem'd to exhale
Her breath, were swept with one strong sweep,
And up the dusty road the hail
Came like a flock of hasty sheep,
