Louise Bogan I Love You Poems

  • 1.
    What body can be ploughed,
    Sown, and broken yearly?
    But she would not die, she vowed,
    But she has, nearly.
  • 2.
    O God, in the dream the terrible horse began
    To paw at the air, and make for me with his blows,
    Fear kept for thirty-five years poured through his mane,
    And retribution equally old, or nearly, breathed through his nose.
  • 3.

    When love, like a frail shell, lies broken,
    I keep no chip of it for token.
  • 8.

    You have said my name as a prayer.
    Here where trees are planted by the water
    I have watched your eyes, cleansed from regret,

Charles Wesley Poem
Sinners, Obey The Gospel-Word!
 by Charles Wesley

Sinners, obey the gospel-word!
Haste to the supper of my Lord!
Be wise to know your gracious day;
All things are ready, come away!

Ready the Father is to own
And kiss his late-returning son;
Ready your loving Saviour stands,
