Hilda Doolittle Wind Poems

  • 1.
    I have had enough.
    I gasp for breath.

    Every way ends, every road,
    ...
  • 2.
    Wash of cold river
    in a glacial land,
    Ionian water,
    chill, snow-ribbed sand,
    ...
  • 3.
    I

    So you have swept me back,
    I who could have walked with the live souls
    ...
  • 4.
    O wind, rend open the heat,
    cut apart the heat,
    rend it to tatters.

    as Hesperus, nor yet so great a star
    as bright Aldeboran or Sirius,
    nor yet the stained and brilliant one of War;

  • 6.
    I first tasted under Apollo's lips,

    meagre flower, thin,

    we have always known you wanted us.

    We fled inland with our flocks.

Henry Lawson Poem
Sydney-Side
 by Henry Lawson

I have left a three-pound billet just to come along with you.
Brighter shines the Star of Rovers on a world that-s growing wide,
But I think I-d give a kingdom for a glimpse of Sydney-Side.
Run of rocky shelves at sunrise, with their base on ocean-s bed;
Homes of Coogee, homes of Bondi, and the lighthouse on South Head.
For in loneliness and hardship-and with just a touch of pride-
