Sir Charles George Douglas Roberts Heart Poems

  • 1.
    Grey rocks, and greyer sea,
       And surf along the shore --
    And in my heart a name
       My lips shall speak no more.
  • 2.
    Up, heart of mine,
    Thou wayfarer of Earth!
    Of seed divine,
    Be mindful of thy birth.
  • 3.
    My glad feet shod with the glittering steel
    I was the god of the wingèd heel.
    The hills in the far white sky were lost;
    The world lay still in the wide white frost;
  • 4.
    O rivers rolling to the sea
    From lands that bear the maple-tree,
    How swell your voices with the strain
    Of loyalty and liberty!
  • 5.
    When the lights come out in the cottages
    Along the shores at eve,
    And across the darkening water
    The last pale colours leave;
  • 6.
    One night came Winter noiselessly, and leaned
    Against my window-pane.
    In the deep stillness of his heart convened
    The ghosts of all his slain.
  • 7.
    He who would start and rise
    Before the crowing cocks, --
    No more he lifts his eyes,
    Whoever knocks.
  • 8.
    With April here,
    And first thin green on the awakening bough,
    What wonderful things and dear,
    My tired heart to cheer,
  • 9.
    The great and the little weavers,
    They neither rest nor sleep.
    They work in the height and the glory,
    They toil in the dark and the deep.

John Greenleaf Whittier Poem
The Light That Is Felt
 by John Greenleaf Whittier

A tender child of summers three,
Seeking her little bed at night,
Paused on the dark stair timidly.
'Oh, mother! Take my hand,' said she,
'And then the dark will all be light.'

We older children grope our way
From dark behind to dark before;
