Henry Newbolt Poems

  • Yattendon
    Among the woods and tillage
    That fringe the topmost downs,
    All lonely lies the village,
    Far off from seas and towns....
  • When I Remember
    When I remember that the day will come
    For this our love to quit his land of birth,
    And bid farewell to all the ways of earth
    With lips that must for evermore be dumb,...
  • Waggon Hill
    Drake in the North Sea grimly prowling,
    Treading his dear Revenge's deck,
    Watched, with the sea-dogs round him growling,
    Galleons drifting wreck by wreck....

Poem of the day

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!
