Harold Monro Suddenly Poems

  • 1.
    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.
  • 2.
    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.
  • 3.
    When I returned at sunset,
    The serving-maid was singing softly
    Under the dark stairs, and in the house
    Twilight had entered like a moon-ray.
  • 4.
    When you and I go down
    Breathless and cold,
    Our faces both worn back
    To earthly mould,
  • 5.
    If suddenly a clod of earth should rise,
    And walk about, and breathe, and speak, and love,
    How one would tremble, and in what surprise
  • 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.
    When the tea is brought at five o'clock,
    And all the neat curtains are drawn with care,
    The little black cat with bright green eyes
    Is suddenly purring there.
  • 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
  • 9.
    Since man has been articulate,
    Mechanical, improvidently wise,
    (Servant of Fate),
    He has not understood the little cries

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!
