Nikolai Stepanovich Gumilev Never Poems

  • 1.
    Let verse of yours be flexible, but strong,
    Strong as a poplar under valley's cover,
    Strong as the earth under a plough, long,
    Strong as a girl, who never knew a lover.
  • 2.
    Dear girl, your cheeks are soft and tender,
    And your breasts, like little hills, are slender,

    Fall in love with me and from this instance
  • 3.
    I heard from the garden a woman singing,
    But I â?¦ I gazed at the moon.

    My thoughts never wondered about that woman -
  • 4.
    In that magic forest, towering trees
    Unexpectedly come forward from the haze.

    Out of the earth, roots spring from other roots,
  • 5.
    I stared at the unfolding road,
    Beneath the shadow of grand oaks, -
    Such a familiar old road,
    Surrounded by flower fence.
  • 6.
    My own dream is lofty, simple thing:
    To seize the oar, put feet into the stirrups,
    And to deceive the time, that slow tries to stir us,
    By kissing lips, forever new and pink;
  • 7.
    I walked an unfamiliar street
    And suddenly heard a raven's cry,
    And the sound of a lute, and distant thunder,-
    In front of me a tram was flying.

George Wither Poem
Rhomboidal Dirge
 by George Wither

Ah me!
Am I the swain
That late from sorrow free
Did all the cares on earth disdain?
And still untouched, as at some safer games,
Played with the burning coals of love, and beauty's flames?
Was't I could dive, and sound each passion's secret depth at will?
And from those huge o'erwhelmings rise, by help of reason still?
