Gamaliel Bradford Night Poems
- 1. I Might-and I Might Not
I might forget ambition and the hunger for success.
I might forget the passion to escape from nothingness.
I might forget the curious dreams of ecstasy that haunt
My fancy day and night. I might forget them. But I can't.
- 2. The Riot
You may think my life is quiet.
I find it full of change,
An ever-varied diet,
As piquant as 'tis strange.
- 3. Fear
When I was little,
My life was half fear.
My nerves were as brittle
As nature may bear.
- 4. The Congregation
The ghost of night's long hours depart
In congregation dreary,
And leave my sorrow-trampled heart
- 5. Exit God
Of old our father's God was real,
Something they almost saw,
Which kept them to a stern ideal
And scourged them into awe.
- 6. God
Day and night I wander widely through the wilderness of thought, Catching dainty things of fancy most reluctant to be caught. Shining tangles leading nowhere I persistently unravel, Tread strange paths of meditation very intricate to travel.
Gleaming bits of quaint desire tempt my steps beyond the decent.
I confound old solid glory with publicity too recent.
