Walter De La Mare Poems

  • Treachery
    She had amid her ringlets bound
    Green leaves to rival their dark hue;
    How could such locks with beauty bound
    Dry up their dew, ...
  • The Vacant Day
    As I did walk in meadows green
    I heard the summer noon resound
    With call of myriad things unseen
    That leapt and crept upon the ground. ...
  • Five Eyes
    In Hans' old Mill his three black cats
    Watch the bins for the thieving rats.
    Whisker and claw, they crouch in the night,
    Their five eyes smouldering green and bright: ...
  • O Dear Me!
    Here are crocuses, white, gold, grey!
    'O dear me!' says Marjorie May;
    Flat as a platter the blackberry blows:
    'O dear me!' says Madeleine Rose; ...
  • Imogen
    Even she too dead! all languor on her brow,
    All mute humanity's last simpleness, -
    And yet the roses in her cheeks unfallen!
    Can death haunt silence with a silver sound? ...

Poem of the day

Robert Service Poem
Golden Days
 by Robert Service

Another day of toil and strife,
Another page so white,
Within that fateful Log of Life
That I and all must write;
Another page without a stain
To make of as I may,
That done, I shall not see again
Until the Judgment Day.
