Trumbull Stickney Alone Poems

  • 1.
    I hear a river thro' the valley wander
    Whose water runs, the song alone remaining.
    A rainbow stands and summer passes under.

  • 2.
    Leave him now quiet by the way
    To rest apart.
    I know what draws him to the dust alway
    And churns him in the builder's lime:
  • 3.
    It 's autumn in the country I remember.

    How warm a wind blew here about the ways!
    And shadows on the hillside lay to slumber
  • 4.
    How strange that here is nothing as it was!
    The sward is young and new,
    The sod there shapes a different mass,
    The random trees stand other than I knew.
  • 5.
    Alone on Lykaion since man hath been
    Stand on the height two columns, where at rest
    Two eagles hewn of gold sit looking East
    Forever; and the sun goes down between.
  • 6.
    And, the last day being come, Man stood alone
    Ere sunrise on the world's dismantled verge,
    Awaiting how from everywhere should urge
    The Coming of the Lord. And, behold, none

    She had the motion of the rose,
    The bird that veers across the light,
    The waterfall that leaps and throws

Ernest Dowson Poem
Vain Hope
 by Ernest Dowson

Sometimes, to solace my sad heart, I say,
Though late it be, though lily-time be past,
Though all the summer skies be overcast,
Haply I will go down to her, some day,
And cast my rests of life before her feet,
That she may have her will of me, being so sweet
And none gainsay!
