Herbert Asquith World Poems

  • 1.
    The starshells float above, the bayonets glisten;
    We bear our fallen friend without a sound;
    Below the waiting legions lie and listen
    To us, who march upon their burial-ground.
    ...
  • 2.
    IN domes of dim and ancient gold,
    In cloisters, where the lightning plays,
    Where gleam the gorgeous saints of old
    In aisles of jade and chrysoprase,

    Hail! O Baby of the May
    In the bubbling river-bed,

    The telegraph lines are tangled hair,
    Motionless on the sullen air

    Between the lines a quiet river flows
    Through brakes of honeysuckle, and of rose,
    And fields where poppies droop in languor deep:

    A veil about your head,
    And wondered at those unseen lips
    With wit bediamonded:
    ...
  • 7.
    FILL up, fill up the stirrup-cup!
    The wine is running free:
    The blue veils of the Spring are out;
    She dances on the sea.
    ...

A Maxime Du Camp
I

Ah! que le monde est grand à la clarté des lampes!
Aux yeux du souvenir que le monde est petit!
