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

Poem of the day

Alfred Lord Tennyson Poem
 by Alfred Lord Tennyson

1. Is it the wind of the dawn that I hear
in the pine overhead?
2. No; but the voice of the deep as it hollows
the cliffs of the land.
1. Is there a voice coming up with the
voice of the deep from the strand,
Once coming up with a Song in the
flush of the glimmering red?
