Stevie Smith Mind Poems

  • 1.
    The shadow was so black,
    I thought it was a cat,
    But once in to it
    I knew it
  • 2.
    I always remember your beautiful flowers
    And the beautiful kimono you wore
    When you sat on the couch
    With that tigerish crouch
  • 3.
    My life is vile
    I hate it so
    I'll wait awhile
    And then I'll go.
  • 4.
    Alone in the woods I felt
    The bitter hostility of the sky and the trees
    Nature has taught her creatures to hate
    Man that fusses and fumes
  • 5.
    Was he married, did he try
    To support as he grew less fond of them
    Wife and family?

  • 6.
    Mother, among the dustbins and the manure
    I feel the measure of my humanity, an allure
    As of the presence of God, I am sure

  • 7.
    Why is the word pretty so underrated?
    In November the leaf is pretty when it falls.
    The stream grows deep in the woods after rain.
    And in the pretty pool the pike stalks.

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.
