Hilda Doolittle Poems

  • Lethe
    NOR skin nor hide nor fleece
    Shall cover you,
    Nor curtain of crimson nor fine
    Shelter of cedar-wood be over you, ...
  • At Baia
    I should have thought
    in a dream you would have brought
    some lovely, perilous thing,
    orchids piled in a great sheath, ...
  • From Citron-bower
    From citron-bower be her bed,
    cut from branch of tree a-flower,
    fashioned for her maidenhead.
  • At Ithaca
    Over and back,
    the long waves crawl
    and track the sand with foam;
    night darkens, and the sea ...
  • Orchard

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!
