Gamaliel Bradford Heart Poems

  • 1.
    Oh, my youth was hot and eager,
    And my heart was burning, burning,
    And the present joy seemed meagre,
    Dwarfed by that perpetual yearning.
  • 2.
    I had visited her often,
    Long had sought, with vain endeavor,
    Her obdurate heart to soften;
    But she answered, 'never, never.'
  • 3.
    The ghost of night's long hours depart
    In congregation dreary,
    And leave my sorrow-trampled heart
    Intolerably weary.
  • 4.
    I deliver a lecture
    And pour out my soul,
    Its full architecture,
    All rounded and whole.
  • 5.
    Others may seem gay and certain,
    Steering one unbroken line.
    But lift up the heart's dim curtain,
    It might prove as frail as mine.

leaving his bed, wander'd alone, bare-headed, barefoot,
Down from the shower'd halo,
Up from the mystic play of shadows, twining and twisting as if they
were alive,
