Mary Elizabeth Coleridge Poems

  • Chillingham
    I
    Through the sunny garden
    The humming bees are still;
    The fir climbs the heather, ...
  • The Deserted House
    There's no smoke in the chimney,
    And the rain beats on the floor;
    There's no glass in the window,
    There's no wood in the door; ...
  • The Train
    A green eye-and a red-in the dark.
    Thunder-smoke-and a spark.

    It is there-it is here-flashed by. ...

John Bunyan Poem
Upon The Sun's Reflection Upon The Clouds In A Fair Morning
 by John Bunyan

Look yonder, ah! methinks mine eyes do see
Clouds edged with silver, as fine garments be;
They look as if they saw that golden face
That makes black clouds most beautiful with grace.
Unto the saints' sweet incense, or their prayer,
These smoky curdled clouds I do compare.
For as these clouds seem edged, or laced with gold,
