Harold Monro Cool 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.
    Slow bleak awakening from the morning dream
    Brings me in contact with the sudden day.
    I am alive รข?? this I.
    I let my fingers move along my body.
  • 3.
    I have discovered finally to-day
    This home that I have called my own
    Is built of straw and clay,
    Not, as I thought, of stone.
  • 4.
    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.
  • 5.
    O gentle vision in the dawn:
    My spirit over faint cool water glides,
    Child of the day,
    To thee;

    Here, in this other world, they come and go
    With easy dream-like movements to and fro.

    The train! The twleve o'clock for paradise.
    Hurry, or it will try to creep away.
    Out in the country every one is wise:

Ernest Dowson Poem
Vain Hope
 by Ernest Dowson

Sometimes, to solace my sad heart, I say,
Though late it be, though lily-time be past,
Though all the summer skies be overcast,
Haply I will go down to her, some day,
And cast my rests of life before her feet,
That she may have her will of me, being so sweet
And none gainsay!
