Trumbull Stickney Sun Poems

  • 1.
    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
  • 2.
    There lies a somnolent lake
    Under a noiseless sky,
    Where never the mornings break
    Nor the evenings die.
  • 3.
    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.
  • 4.
    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.
  • 5.
    Only once more and not again--the larches
    Shake to the wind their echo, "Not again,"--
    We see, below the sky that over-arches
    Heavy and blue, the plain
  • 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
  • 7.
    That day her eyes were deep as night.
    She had the motion of the rose,
    The bird that veers across the light,
    The waterfall that leaps and throws
  • 8.
    Live blindly and upon the hour. The Lord,
    Who was the Future, died full long ago.
    Knowledge which is the Past is folly. Go,
    Poor child, and be not to thyself abhorred.

Andrew Lang Poem
Melville And Coghill - The Place Of The Little Hand
 by Andrew Lang

DEAD, with their eyes to the foe,
Dead, with the foe at their feet;
Under the sky laid low
Truly their slumber is sweet,
Though the wind from the Camp of the
Slain Men blow,
And the rain on the wilderness beat.
