Harold Monro Away Poems

  • 1.
    Tell me about that harvest field.
    Oh! Fifty acres of living bread.
    The colour has painted itself in my heart;
    The form is patterned in my head.
  • 2.
    You little friend, your nose is ready; you sniff,
    Asking for that expected walk,
    (Your nostrils full of the happy rabbit-whiff)
    And almost talk.
  • 3.
    The holy boy
    Went from his mother out in the cool of the day
    Over the sun-parched fields
    And in among the olives shining green and shining grey.
  • 4.
    What I saw was just one eye
    In the dawn as I was going :
    A bird can carry all the sky
    In that little button glowing.
  • 5.
    Here, in this other world, they come and go
    With easy dream-like movements to and fro.
    They stare through lovely eyes, yet do not seek
    An answering gaze, or that a man should speak.
  • 6.
    The train! The twleve o'clock for paradise.
    Hurry, or it will try to creep away.
    Out in the country every one is wise:
  • 7.
    Autumn is in the air,
    The children are playing everywhere.

    One dare not open this old door too wide;
  • 8.
    WHEN you have tidied all things for the night,
    And while your thoughts are fading to their sleep,
    You'll pause a moment in the late firelight,
    Too sorrowful to weep.

Carl Sandburg Poem
Baby Toes
 by Carl Sandburg

There is a blue star, Janet,
Fifteen years- ride from us,
If we ride a hundred miles an hour.

There is a white star, Janet,
Forty years- ride from us,
If we ride a hundred miles an hour.
