Hilda Doolittle White Poems

  • 1.
    I should have thought
    in a dream you would have brought
    some lovely, perilous thing,
    orchids piled in a great sheath,
  • 2.
    White, O white faceâ??
    from disenchanted days
    wither alike dark rose
    and fiery bays:
  • 3.
    Silver dust
    lifted from the earth,
    higher than my arms reach,
    you have mounted.
  • 4.
    The light passes
    from ridge to ridge,
    from flower to flowerâ??
    the hepaticas, wide-spread
  • 5.

    So you have swept me back,
    I who could have walked with the live souls
  • 6.
    All Greece hates
    the still eyes in the white face,
    the lustre as of olives
    where she stands,
  • 7.
    O Hymen king.

    Hymen, O Hymen king,
    what bitter thing is this?
  • 8.
    YOU are as gold
    as the half-ripe grain
    that merges to gold again,
    as white as the white rain

William Shakespeare Poem
Sonnet 11: As Fast As Thou Shalt Wane, So Fast Thou Grow'st
 by William Shakespeare

As fast as thou shalt wane, so fast thou grow'st
In one of thine, from that which thou departest,
And that fresh blood which youngly thou bestow'st,
Thou mayst call thine when thou from youth convertest.
Herein lives wisdom, beauty, and increase;
Without this folly, age, and cold decay,
If all were minded so, the times should cease,
And threescore year would make the world away.
