Gamaliel Bradford Night Poems

  • 1.
    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.
    You may think my life is quiet.
    I find it full of change,
    An ever-varied diet,
    As piquant as 'tis strange.
  • 3.
    When I was little,
    My life was half fear.
    My nerves were as brittle
    As nature may bear.
  • 4.
    The ghost of night's long hours depart
    In congregation dreary,
    And leave my sorrow-trampled heart
    Intolerably weary.
  • 5.
    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.
    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.

Poem of the day

Alfred Lord Tennyson Poem
 by Alfred Lord Tennyson

1. Is it the wind of the dawn that I hear
in the pine overhead?
2. No; but the voice of the deep as it hollows
the cliffs of the land.
1. Is there a voice coming up with the
voice of the deep from the strand,
Once coming up with a Song in the
flush of the glimmering red?
