Stevie Smith People Poems

  • 1.
    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.
  • 2.
    I like to get off with people,
    I like to lie in their arms
    I like to be held and lightly kissed,
    Safe from all alarms.
  • 3.
    Coleridge received the Person from Porlock
    And ever after called him a curse,
    Then why did he hurry to let him in?
    He could have hid in the house.
  • 4.
    Was he married, did he try
    To support as he grew less fond of them
    Wife and family?

  • 5.
    The lions who ate the Christians on the sands of the arena
    By indulging native appetites played was now been seen a
    Not entirely negligible part
    In consolidating at the very start
  • 6.
    I longed for companionship rather,
    But my companions I always wished farther.
    And now in the desolate night
    I think only of the people i should like to bite.

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.
