Joseph Brodsky I Love You Poems

  • 1.
    From Martial
    Now is windy and the waves are cresting over
    Fall is soon to come to change the place entirely.
    Change of colors moves me, Postum, even stronger
  • 2.
    As you pour yourself a scotch
    Crush a roach or check your watch
    As your hands adjust your tie people die

  • 3.
    I said fate plays a game without a score,
    and who needs fish if you've got caviar?

    The grains and the millstone, the whispers and the clatter --

    Best are the dales and rivers removed by force,
    as from the next compartment throttles "Oh, stop it, Bernie,"
    yet the rhythm of those paroxysms is exactly yours.
  • 8.
    Twice I awoke this night, and went
    to the window. The streetlamps were
    a fragment of a sentence spoken in sleep,
    leading to nothing, like omission points,

Hilaire Belloc Poem
The Catholic Sun
 by Hilaire Belloc

Wherever the Catholic sun doth shine,
There-s always laughter and good red wine.
At least I-ve always found it so.
Benedicamus Domino!
