Harold Monro Delight Poems

  • 1.
    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.
  • 2.
    O gentle vision in the dawn:
    My spirit over faint cool water glides,
    Child of the day,
    To thee;
  • 3.
    Fit for perpetual worship is the power
    That holds our bodies safely to the earth.

  • 4.

  • 5.
    It is the sacred hour: above the far
    Low emerald hills that northward fold,
    Calmly, upon the blue the evening star
    Floats, wreathed in dusky gold.
  • 6.
    When you and I go down
    Breathless and cold,
    Our faces both worn back
    To earthly mould,
  • 7.
    The train! The twleve o'clock for paradise.
    Hurry, or it will try to creep away.
    Out in the country every one is wise:
  • 8.
    They are the angels of that watery world,
    With so much knowledge that they just aspire
    To move themselves on golden fins,
    Or fill their paradise with fire

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!
