Louise Imogen Guiney Wind Poems

  • 1.
    Ye daffodilian days, whose fallen towers
    Shielded our paradisal prime from ill,
    Fair Past, fair motherhood! let come what will,
    We, being yours, defy the anarch powers.
  • 2.

    The mare is pawing by the oak,
    The chaise is cool and wide
  • 3.
    Above the wall that's broken,
    And from the coppice thinned,
    So sacred and so sweet
    The lilac in the wind!
  • 4.

  • 5.
    High-hearted Surrey! I do love your ways,
    Venturous, frank, romantic, vehement,
    All with inviolate honor sealed and blent,
    To the axe-edge that cleft your soldier-bays:
  • 6.
    I hear in my heart, I hear in its ominous pulses,
    All day, on the road, the hoofs of invisible horses,
    All night, from their stalls, the importunate pawing and neighing.

  • 7.
    The breath of dew, and twilight's grace,
    Be on the lonely battle-place;
    And to so young, so kind a face,
    The long, protecting grasses cling!
  • 8.
    HIGH above hate I dwell:
    O storms! farewell.
    Though at my sill your daggered thunders play,
    Lawless and loud to-morrow as to-day,

Delmore Schwartz Poem
Calmly We Walk Through This April's Day
 by Delmore Schwartz

Calmly we walk through this April's day,
Metropolitan poetry here and there,
In the park sit pauper and rentier,
The screaming children, the motor-car
Fugitive about us, running away,
Between the worker and the millionaire
Number provides all distances,
It is Nineteen Thirty-Seven now,
