Gamaliel Bradford World Poems

  • 1.
    When I was little,
    My life was half fear.
    My nerves were as brittle
    As nature may bear.
  • 2.
    You really can't imagine how I love the ancient Greeks.
    I love the dancing language where their mobile spirit speaks.
    I love the songs of Homer, flowing on like streams of light,
    With a touch of human kindness in the splendid shock of fight.
  • 3.
    Silly little bird,
    Singing of its love,
    Sang and never heard
    Winds of wrath above.
  • 4.
    Of old our father's God was real,
    Something they almost saw,
    Which kept them to a stern ideal
    And scourged them into awe.
  • 5.
    Hist! Zop!
    The world is all awry.
    Think that you can mend it?
    Take a turn and try.
  • 6.
    I might have been a worker, but I'm nothing but a drone.
    I tell my idle stories in a philosophic tone.
    In a fuzzy, spiny mantle of remoteness softly furled
    I lie and watch with half-shut eyes the stupefying world.

Most pleasing to the eye,
Whereon if anybody looks
He feels disposed to buy.

I hear that many are for sale,-
Those that record no dates,
And such editions as regale
