Stephen Crane I Love You Poems
- 1. A Slant Of Sun On Dull Brown Walls
A slant of sun on dull brown walls,
A forgotten sky of bashful blue.
Toward God a mighty hymn,
- 2. I Looked Here
I looked here;
I looked there;
Nowhere could I see my love.
And -- this time --
- 3. I Explain
I explain the silvered passing of a ship at night,
The sweep of each sad lost wave,
The dwindling boom of the steel thing's striving,
The little cry of a man to a man,
- 4. And You Love Me
And you love me
I love you.
- 5. Ay, Workman, Make Me A Dream
Ay, workman, make me a dream,
A dream for my love.
Cunningly weave sunlight,
Breezes, and flowers.
- 6. I Heard Thee Laugh
I HEARD thee laugh,
And in this merriment
I defined the measure of my pain;
I knew that I was alone,
- 7. A Slant Of Sun On Dull Brown Walls
- 8. Love Walked Alone.
Love walked alone.
The rocks cut her tender feet,
And the brambles tore her fair limbs.
There came a companion to her,
- 9. Intrigue
THOU art my love
And thou art the peace of sundown
When the blue shadows soothe
And the grasses and the leaves sleep
