Stevie Smith Heart Poems

  • 1.
    My heart was full of softening showers,
    I used to swing like this for hours,
    I did not care for war or death,
    I was glad to draw my breath.
  • 2.
    Nobody knows what I feel about Freddy
    I cannot make anyone understand
    I love him sub specie aet ernitaties
    I love him out of hand.
  • 3.
    Nobody heard him, the dead man,
    But still he lay moaning:
    I was much further out than you thought
    And not waving but drowning.
  • 4.
    The nearly right
    And yet not quite
    In love is wholly evil
    And every heart
  • 5.

    Who are you that you should so lightly hold him?
    Are you not also a man, and in your heart

  • 6.

    He smiled too briefly, his face was pale as sand,
    He jumped into a taxi when he saw me coming,
    Leaving my alone with a private meaning,

Alfred Lord Tennyson Poem
Obiit Mdcccxxxiii (Entire)
 by Alfred Lord Tennyson

Strong Son of God, immortal Love,
Whom we, that have not seen thy face,
By faith, and faith alone, embrace,
Believing where we cannot prove;
Thine are these orbs of light and shade;
Thou madest Life in man and brute;
Thou madest Death; and lo, thy foot
Is on the skull which thou hast made.
